SXSW Film Festival

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

The SXSW festival is a three-fold delight consisting of one interactive conference, one five-day music showcase and one week-long film festival. So, in the build-up to the annual expo of autonomous and big-budget creativity, we will be posting a curated crop of trailers from the official film selection. Featuring a heady mix-bag of headliners, competition winners, “emerging visions” and documentaries, the films screened will prove the making or breaking of many a filmmaker/goer. And, to anyone in Austin, Texas from March 9 we say: damn you and your canny geographic status.

Headliner:

BIG EASY EXPRESS, directed by Emmett Malloy.

Documentary Competition:

The Central Park Effect, directed by Jeffrey Kimball.

Narrative Short Competition:

Syndromes, directed by Kristoffer Borgli.

Emerging Visions:

Elecktrick Children, directed by Rebecca Thomas.

Documentary Spotlight:

Beauty is Embarrassing, directed by Neil Berkeley.
Brief Encounters, directed by Ben Shapiro.
