"...Ever wonder why people love Fantastic Fest so much? There was a woman at last night's world premiere of Tim Burton's new masterpiece Frankenweenie, and a lot of people were commenting on how great her dress was: A perfect Wednesday Addams outfit, but for a grown-up. That got the comments, not that it was Winona Ryder wearing it...."

And the short, along with dozens of others, is screening as a part of the Austin Premiere of Short Film Works by William Wegman, a fundraiser benefiting EmanciPet, an Austin-based nonprofit attempting to eliminate pet overpopulation and euthanasia by providing low- or no-cost spay/neuter services...."

"...The oversized buttons of the Anti-Reality panel are mapped with time-saving Adobe Premiere shortcuts, but the iTunes "Waveform Collider" features a "trill" button to select a random Bun B song. The Subspace Sat Comm manages Internet functions, including a button to type "haha" into Gchat and another that links to the Reddit homepage, the browsing of which he rations to 10 minutes a day using the time-management program Stayfocused...."

"...Despite my plea to the ether that no filmic breaking news happen while I was on vacation, the ether went ahead and broke it anyway. Like yesterday's news that SXSW posterboy Joe Swanberg would world-premiere his latest, Alexander the Last, there in a unique twin-platform release with IFC Film's Festival Direct – meaning, as the curtain goes up on March 14 at a SXSW theatrical venue, Swanberg's film will be available on video-on-demand simultaneously..."
"...Ray and Campbell of CrashCam Films were previously best known for stoner spectacle Rock Opera and videos from the likes of heavy-hitters such as the Riverboat Gamblers and Nashville Pussy.

"...The moment the news leaked last year that cult actor Crispin Hellion Glover's next role would be that of Willard (first portrayed by Bruce Davison in the 1971 original), fans were ecstatic. Sunday's Alamo Drafthouse Downtown premiere of the finished film (with Glover, director Glen Morgan, and producer James Wong in attendance) proved the casting coup right on the proverbial money, with Glover ratcheting up his trademark lunatic calm to histrionic levels unseen since he nearly kickboxed David Letterman's face off a decade ago..."

You got return trips from SXSW alums Ry Russo-Young (You Won't Miss Me), Lynn Shelton (Humpday), and Alex Karpovsky (Trust Us, This Is All Made Up), plus you’ll-never-believe-this docs like Ben Steinbauer’s Winnebago Man and Michael Paul Stephenson’s Best Worst Movie (it’s Troll 2, in case you were wondering)… Not to mention the world premiere of Women in Trouble, written and directed by Sebastian “Snakes on a Muthafuckin’ Plane” Gutierrez..."
