    SXSWdaily | "Cold Weather," "Saturday Night," and "Red White & Blue" Bring Weekend Buzz

    The sunny weather and clear skies persist here in Austin, where audiences are reveling in epic genres, small indies, auteur favorites, and more in the fest's seventeenth year. Three days into SXSW and our own Anne Thompson has called it: "First Hit is Cold Weather" reads the headline. LA Times' Mark Olsen sees big things for the film and bigger things for Katz. "Where his previous features, 'Quiet City' (2007) and 'Dance Party, USA' (2006), were diffuse romances, making Katz seem something of a lo-fi sensualist and new American independent variation on art-house stalwarts Michelangelo Antonioni or Wong Kar-wai, 'Cold Weather' has just eno...

    SXSW '10 | Filmmakers Capture History in "11/4/08"

    "11/4/08"'s marks Jeff Deutchman's directorial debut.

Two weeks before the election of Barack Obama, I asked friends around the world to record their experiences of 11/4/08, a day that had become historic before it had even taken place.

    SXSW '10 | DIY Director Garth Donovan Keeps It Simple in "Fossil"

    Boston DIY filmmaker Garth Donovan is an independent filmmaker to the max. He completed his fourth feature, "Phillip the Fossil," in a green, recession friendly manner, using a small crew and a host of non-actors.
