The original film "Before I Disappear" premiered this week at the South by Southwest film festival in Austin, Texas. The film is based on the award-winning short "Curfew" and stars Shawn Christensen, Paul Wesley, and Emmy Rossum. The film follows Richie ("Christensen") who at the lowest point of his life gets a call from his estranged sister ("Rossum"), asking him to look after his eleven-year old niece, Sophia, for a few hours.

Rounding out the cast are Ron Perlman and Fatima Ptacek. The Examiner sat down with the cast of the film to talk books. Paul Wesley dished about "Vampire Diaries" and Emmy Rossum told us what it was like playing a part in the Young Adult hit series "Beautiful Creatures." The rest of the cast told us about their reading habits.

After the premiere, the stars kicked off their cowboy boots for the exclusive after party at popup STK Supper Suite. Hosted by Blue Moon Brewing Company and Dobel Tequila, the cast enjoyed drinks and nibbled on delicious food. They also spent some well-deserved time with friends (Wesley's girlfriend and "Originals" actress Phoebe Tonkin made an appearance) and even a few fans. Music was provided by up and comer singer/songwriter Olivia Somerlyn. Make sure to check out the video segment above for all the full details and interviews and party footage.
