Musician Neil Young, jazz legend Herbie Hancock as well as hip-hop icons the Beastie Boys are among the musicians attending the 2006 South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) for documentaries screening during the event (March 10-18) in Austin, TX. Young will attend the fest with director Jonathan Demme for their film, "Heart of Gold," while Hancock will be at SXSW on Friday, March 17, for the world premiere of Doug Biro and Jon Fine's documentary, "Possibilities," which follows the recording of Hancock's album of the same name. The Beastie Boys will be in attendance for a Wednesday, March 15 regional premiere of their concert film, "Awesome: I Fuckin' Shot That!". The rap trio will also take part in an interview panel earlier that afternoon, as part of the SXSW Music Conference. The SXSW Music Conference is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2006. "The roots of the SXSW Film Festival belong to our wonderful music festival," commented SXSW Film Festival Producer Matt Dentler in a statement. "So, it only makes sense that our music documentary program has grown and developed so well over the years." For more information, visit their website. [Brian Brooks]
