SXSW Film Festival

SXSW Film Festival

Growing out of Austin's South By Southwest Music Festival in the early 1990s, the SXSW Film Festival has become one of the premiere American film festivals. With a strong selection each year of American indie films, documentaries (including of course strong music docs) and a highly selective group of films from around the world, SXSW is a vital festival. The great barbecue and Tex-Mex food in Austin adds to festival-goers enjoyment.
