SXSW Film 2002

(March 12-16) continues to rack up mad indie cred with a deluge of new arrivals to their ever-expanding list of films, including Danny Glover's directorial debut Just a Dream; Y Tu Mama Tambien, the highest grossing Mexican film in history and the fourth film from Alfonso Cuaron (Great Expectations, A Little Princess); and Texas, a documentary about Russell Crowe's band Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts and their sojourn to Austin while recording the CD Bastard Life or Clarity last summer. Festival passes go on sale Friday, Feb. 22; $50 gets you in (line, at least -- badgeholders get preference) for any of the 170 films scheduled to be screened this year. Passes will be sold only at Waterloo Records, in person, on a walk-up basis, maximum four per person. Read all about it at
