SXSW Announces 2012 Film Program

This year’s SXSW Film Program features 10 different categories ranging from two competitions (narrative and documentary) to big budget headliners (think 21 Jump Street, Cabin in the Woods) to special events.

Eight films were chosen for the narrative film competition out of 1,112 submissions. Booster, Eden, Gayby, Gimme the Loot, Los Chidos, Pilgrim Song, Starle and The Taiwan Oyster will all make their world premieres in the competition.

Another eight documentaries were selected for their own competition out of 845 submissions. Bay of All Saints, Beware of Mr. Baker, The Central Park Effect, Jeff, Seeking Asian Female, The Sheikh and I, The Source and Welcome to the Machine will all also make their world premieres.
