Festival Face-Off

Panels and screenings and shows, oh my!

Festival Face-Off

Sure, the "face-off" joke is kind of funny given the skull on the cover. But we really mean it: You've got your choices this weekend.

Here, we give you a brief introduction to both of your cinema-centric options (see "In the Blue Corner: Austin Film Festival" and "In the Red Corner: Housecore Horror Film Festival"), with a handful of our personal favorite events flagged in convenient capsule form. But there's plenty more research and reportage on both; click around to dive into our more in-depth preview coverage, or head to the Screens blog for up-to-the-minute news from the festival front lines.

And of course, there's plenty of cross-pollination between the festivals, too, so if you simply can't pick a favorite, don't be afraid to try to do both. Just keep your head about you, OK?
