SXSW Announces Film Line-Up

sxsw logoWoo! SXSW has just released their line up for 2011 and as usual it looks awesome. The annual movie, music, and digital… umm… stuff festival takes place March 11-20 in Austin, Tex. and has become one of the leading film festivals in the country.

For the full list, head over to IFC, but we’ve selected a handful to be on the lookout for as they sound awesome.

The Beaver, Paul, Source Code, Super, Conan O’Brian Can’t Stop — SXSW attracts big name films year after year. These are the ones you should see in 2011.

96 MINUTES: Four young lives. One night. One terrifying event. These 96 minutes will change everything.

It sounds like this film takes place in real time, with the whole movie taking 96 minutes to screen. Add on that Brittany Snow is cast and I’m all there.

The City Dark: The film chronicles the disappearance of darkness, following astronomers, cancer researchers, ecologists and philosophers in a quest to understand what is lost in the glare of city lights.

The one thing I’ve missed since moving to NYC is the stars. A documentary on the subject? Sweeeeet.

FIGHTVILLE: A documentary about the art and sport of fighting: a microcosm of life, a physical manifestation of that other brutal contest called the American Dream.

Fight Club: the documentary? You know the rules….

Girl Walks Into a Bar: A sharp-witted comedy that follows a group of apparent strangers in interlocking stories taking place in ten different bars during the course of one evening in Los Angeles.

The cast includes Carla Gugino, Zachary Quinto, Danny DeVito, Josh Hartnett, and Rosario Dawson. How does this not sound good?

The Other F Word: When the most anti-authoritarian among us become the ultimate authorities… we might just have to use The Other F Word.

Ok, the only reason I put this one on here is because I honestly can’t think of the other F word? Friend? Fired? Fugitive? What is it?!

Bad Fever: A humorless loner attempts to win the admiration of a drifter with his debut performance at the local comedy club.

There is nothing better than crappy stand up. NOTHING.

blacktino: Sad, fat, black, latino, nerd. It doesn’t get any worse than that.

Womp womp.

WUSS: A high school teacher is severely beaten by his own students. Too embarrassed to inform the authorities, he plots his own revenge.

How does that not sound awesome??
