    SXSW '11 Trailer: 'Blacktino' With Danny Trejo, Jeff Fahey, More

    SXSW gets underway in just a few weeks with an especially stacked film lineup this year, from more high profile premieres (“Source Code,” “The Beaver,” “Paul”) to festival favorites from Sundance and TIFF (“Win Win,” “Beginners,” “Being Elmo: A Puppeteers Journey”). For more homegrown fare, the fest has its “Lone Star States” category for films made in or about Texas which is kicking off the festival with “blacktino” by first-time filmmaker Aaron Burns.

Meanwhile, "Saw" creator James Wan will try and scare you silly with "Insidious" (w...

    SXSW '11 Lineup Revealed: 'Red Riding Hood,' 'Beginners,' 'Win Win,' 'Super' & More To Unspool

    'Ceremony,' 'Incendies,' 'Fubar: Balls To The Wall,' 'In A Better World,' 'Tabloid,' 'Pom Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold,' 'How To Die In Oregon' & More Also Among HighlightsOK, so while Sundance is over and the next big festival on the horizon is Cannes in May, another increasingly important fest on the circuit has become SXSW. A looser, more bbq- and beer-fueled event than their snootier colleagues, SXSW has become an important destination particularly for genre films looking to make a strong first impression. The early announcements of films that will be playing -- "Paul," "Source Code," "The Innkeepers," "The Beaver" -- c...
