AUSTIN – As the SXSW Interactive enters its final day on Tuesday, film and music portions of the annual festival in Austin are gaining momentum. Traffic in and out of San Antonio’s “icehouse,” a hub for Alamo City advocates and local industry experts, inside the Austin Convention Center was notably slower on Monday than the trade show’s first day on Sunday, said Choose San Antonio Program Director Nicolette Good.
