The Secret Word of the Day...

SXSW Film panels, including Pee-Wee, announced

The Secret Word of the Day...
courtesy of actually four: SXSW Film panels announced. Wait, let’s tack on four more: Paul Reubens is headlining.

Okay, so not actually that secret: SXSW Film just dropped a tonnage of panel programming, and the highlights include capital-letter Conversations with Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Road Trip) and Paul Reubens (the immortal Pee-Wee).

Also on tap: opening night film Source Code’s director Duncan Jones and castmates Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan; the previously announced AICN anniversary celebration/reunion; Catherine Hardwicke’s Directing Workshop (she’ll also be sneaking her new wolfish Red Riding Hood, which secretly we’re hoping is her anything-you-can-do-i-can-do-better riposte to Twilight’s producers, who seriously lost a good thing when they sent her packing after episode one); a chat between music supervisor Randall Poster and Richard Linklater; and the always-popular FX demonstration, Let's Blow Something Up!!!, with live special effects blasting from Steve Wolf of Special FX International.

Go here for the whole shebang.
