People often say that Austin and Woodstock have a lot in common. And, for the last few years, we’ve been lucky to have some of the programmers of the popular Woodstock Film Festival, like the amazing Laurent Rejto, come down and hang out at SXSW. The annual festival (running October 11-15) has just announced its lineup of features, and it’s a varitable SXSW 2006 reunion, all getting their New York-area premieres. The SXSW/Woodstock love-in includes:
Narrative Features: Dance Party USA, Gretchen, and Heavens Fall.
Documentary Features: Air Guitar Nation, Autumn’s Eyes, a/k/a Tommy Chong, Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash, Darkon, Maxed Out, and Tales of the Rat Fink.
See all of these, plus more (including Mike Akel’s Chalk)! I wish I was gonna be there.
