We are so excited that Matthew’s directorial debut, Fat Kid Rules The World will be having a world premiere at South by South West, the famous music, film and interactive festival held in Austin, Texas in March!
This is fantastic news to hear and congratulations go to all the talented cast and creative crew who worked very hard on this movie, especially Matthew who has been passionate about this project ever since he read K.L Going’s brilliant book and narrated the audiobook.
We can’t wait to find out more about the premiere at SXSW and will be reporting all the news as soon as we know about it.
South By South West Film is held from March 9th to the 17th and many other movies will be premiering there too.

Benefiting L.A’s Gay and Lesbian Center as well as the Baby Dragon Fund, 40 celebrities gather to write, direct and star in a series of short 10 minute plays, all under 24 hours!
