The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

Now in its 20th year, the South By Southwest Film Conference and Festival is set to invade Austin, Texas between March 8-16. The fest’s organisers have sent out the list of movies that will feature and it includes some doozies, with screenings of Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, not to mention the world premiere of both Evil Dead and the new Steve Carell/Jim Carrey magician comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.

With 69 world premieres among the 109 movies showing, including 68 films from first-time filmmakers, the festival is known for finding hidden gems and giving other movies a welcome boost.

The narrative feature competition this year includes Todd Sklar’s Awful Nice, Carlos Puga’s Burma, Improvement Club from Dayna Hanson, LICKS directed by Jonathan Singer-Vine, Chris Eska’s The Retrieval, Short Term 12 from Destin Daniel Cretton, Ruben Amar’s Swim Little Fish Swim and This Is Where We Live from Josh Barrett and Marc Menchaca.

“It’s an incredible privilege to sift through so much exciting work, and every year brings new surprises. Though trends emerge after the fact, not consciously while we’re programming, much of this year’s program embraces love and the need/search/desire for connection,” says Film Conference and Festival Producer Janet Pierson in a statement.

“Many films reflect importantly on our culture and include intimate looks at iconic figures, and we’re lucky to have a plethora of hugely entertaining and audience pleasing films. Even more thrilling is the opportunity to support so many filmmakers we’ve followed for years who’ve made enormous creative leaps in their work.”
