Two Austin film fest alum hit the Big Apple

Two Austin fest films (past and future) have been selected to screen at the prestigious New Directors/New Films annual showcase ("dedicated to the discovery and support of emerging artists") at New York's Lincoln Center. South by Southwest 2008 Film alum Emily Hubley (who we profiled in our SXSW Film issue) has been selected for her live action/animated hybrid The Toe Tactic (Emily also designed this year's Film fest tote bag). And shortly after Lucía Puenzo's already much-celebrated XXY, an Argentine film about a 15-year-old hermaphrodite, screens at ND/NF, it'll make its way down to Texas to premiere at this year's Cine las Americas festival, which runs from April 16-24. Be sure to check out the Chronicle's April 11 issue for our Cine las Americas preview.
