SXSW Film Announces Lineup

It's a Win Win for everybody

After weeks of dribbling the details of its 2011 lineup, the South by Southwest Film Festival just turned the faucet on full blast, announcing yesterday about a gazillion titles that will be gracing Austin screens March 11-19. You can find the whole list at our Picture in Picture blog (austinchronicle.com/pip), but highlights include Tom McCarthy's Win Win, fresh off big-time buzz at Sundance, and Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins; Sundance hit docs How To Die in Oregon and Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey; an especially strong slate of locally made films in the Lone Star States sidebar; and a dash of meta with the doc Outside Industry: The Story of SXSW.
