The lightning-round edition of everything Austin-filmic you might have missed this week

Have you been reading our Screens blog, Picture in Picture? How about following us on Twitter? No? For shame. Here's what you've missed: South by Southwest Film brings out the big guns (Joss Whedon, Judd Apatow); Alamo Slaughter gets an opening date; Heather Courtney wins the Independent Spirit's Truer Than Fiction Award for Where Soldiers Come From and a swag bag with a $25,000 grant; the Austin Film Society's Director of Artist Services Bryan Poyser is stepping down in March and prepping a new movie; cassette culture doc Rewind This! trends big; and Byron Brown should be the new face of Doritos, but sadly, is not. Want more? Check us out at austinchronicle.com/pip and @ACScreens.
