The 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival officially kicks off today in Austin, Texas, featuring a couple weeks full of interactive panels, shows, films, music and so much more. Here are seven buzzed-about flicks premiering in Austin that you’re likely to see hitting movie theaters in the coming weeks and months.
This week, the Alamo Drafthouse ushers in its newest location and gets swept up in SXSW frenzy.
SXSW is only a couple months away. The annual festival in Austin, Texas announced their first slate of films and will open with Joss Whedon's The Cabin in the Woods, starring Chris Hemsworth. Check out what else is scheduled to screen.
Last month’s SXSW Film Festival introduced the world to one film that people haven’t stopped talking about. Fans (including yours truly) who caught a screening of Attack the Block in Austin have had nothing but awesome things to say about this British export about a bunch of inner-city, South London neighborhood toughs who do battle...
The 2011 SXSW Film Festival has come to an end, which means all you out there probably want to know which films you should actually pay attention to as we soldier on through 2011. SXSW is a different animal from a festival like, say, Sundance, because at SXSW there are more actual moviegoers than people "in the industry" – so if a film...
The 2011 SXSW Film Festival is winding down, but not before what is perhaps the fest’s biggest premiere last night, Jodie Foster’s The Beaver. In any given year this may not have been such a big film, but with Mel Gibson’s career in turmoil amid some scandalous allegations (and very public audio tapes), all eyes have been on Foster’s third feature as a director to see if Gibson can potentially use the film to inch his way back into movies.
Day Four of the SXSW Film Festival finally brought some deals to the table. This isn't so much a fest known for its big deals as it is its big parties, but Sundance proved this was going to be a hot year for indie film acquisitions, and the heat from Park City continued to spread to Austin, Texas.
Day Three at the SXSW Film Festival found a jam-packed Pee-Wee Herman panel, a double feature of Universal comedies (Paul and Bridesmaids), some distributors interested in the film Kill List and a tiny film called The FP, which completely took me by surprise by delivering the most insane premise on a plate full of awesome.

It’s been a wild couple of days here at the SXSW Film Festival, with films screening around the clock in between tons of panels, really cool parties (like the one Fandango hosted last night alongside the Alamo Drafthouse) and surprise events...
So you’re sitting at home far away from Austin, Texas, wondering what the SXSW Film Festival is and why you should care about it. Or, perhaps you’re in Austin now, scurrying around to set your schedule, learning about the different venues, and figuring out which films to make a priority and which to, well, skip.
The 2011 SXSW Film Festival begins this Friday with the premiere of Duncan Jones’ Source Code, and your friends at Fandango will be on the ground, seeing films, attending parties (like the one celebrating our partnership with the Alamo Drafthouse) in Austin, Texas. But before we grab our cowboy hats and head to the airport, here are ten films playing this year’s fest that we’re really looking forward to.
Now that the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival has come to a close, it's time for me to let you know which films you'll probably wanna keep an eye out for down the line. Not all of these have distribution deals, but based on the buzz dripping off their festival premieres, there's a very good chance...
The SXSW Film Festival is still screening films through March 20th over in Austin, Texas, but I've returned early to let you all know about some of the films making waves as the fest nears its final bow. I'll be back later in the week to present you with a few more titles...

"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
