This is my second year to take time off from work and attend SxSW Film full-time. I really like this festival. It’s no Fantastic Fest, mind you, but still has excellent programing & generally brings people from all over. The social time standing in line is invaluable for learning about all the films playing at the fest as quirky relationships form with “line friends”.

Here is my SxSW film list:

  • Red Riding Hood 3/10 (technically counts, even though was shown the night before)
  • Heaven Hell 3/11
  • The Ballad of Genesis & Lady Jaye 3/11
  • Insidious 3/11
  • Better This World 3/12
  • Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey 3/12
  • Bellflower 3/12
  • Little Deaths 3/12
  • Sound of My Voice 3/13
  • Cave of Forgotten Dreams 3/13
