Miami Film Fest, SXSW and Irish Shorts: Offsite Spouting

Miami Film Fest, SXSW and Irish Shorts: Offsite Spouting

It’s a busy couple of weeks for me, as I currently am attending the Miami International Film Festival and will be joining up with the rest of the blogsophere in Austin for SXSW come Monday. I should have some coverage from both events here on Spout, as well, but I’d also like to direct your attention to off-Spout content I’m doing. As usual, my concentration at festivals is documentary, of which Miami and SXSW each is packed with great selections. At the moment, I have a few reviews over at my strictly doc blog Nothing But the Doc (So Help Me Blog). Here are links to those:

“Mooney Vs. Fowle”

“Magic Trip” (pictured above)

“How to Make Your Own Country”

Stay tuned for more over there and here.

As for SXSW stuff, I’ve posted one double review here at Spout, of “Hesher” and “Super,” but I might as well also link back to some stuff playing at the festival over the next week and a half, all highly recommended:

“The Sound of My Voice”

“Win Win”

“Septien”

“Terri”

“Hobo With a Shotgun”

“How to Die in Oregon”

“Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times”

“The Interrupters”

Other recommended films seen prior to SXSW (and not reviewed): “The Catechism Cataclysm”; “Armadillo”; “Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey”; “Cave of Forgotten Dreams”; “TABLOID”; “Senna” and the documentary short “Satan Since 2003.”

One last film I saw previously, which I didn’t like but which others very much do and so I recommend on principle of letting you make up your own mind:

“The Greatest Movie Ever Sold”

Finally, since we love short films here at Spout, and hope you do too, here is a link to my latest shorts column over at Cinematical, which features 10 Irish or Irish-themed movies you can watch embedded into that post:
