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.
