SXSW announces first round of 2012 film panels

26 October 2011 12:30 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

It's kind of insane that we're about to start talking about next year's South by Southwest and it's still October. Just last week I reposted a video from this year's SXSW! But here we go: today SXSW announced their first round of film programming, a preliminary list of panels you'll be able to check out next March in Austin, Texas. Highlights include a conversation with "Drive" and "Contagion" composer Cliff Martinez, a chat about arts criticism in the age of Twitter, and the return of the legendary "Jeffrey Tambor Acting Workshop." My favorite panel title on the list? "The Evolution of the Douchebag in Modern Cinema." It's sort of hard for douchebags to evolve -- that's kind of what makes them douchebags -- but I think I know what they're getting at.

The full list of announced panels is below. And, hey, it's not too late to submit your feature »

Slacker 2011: Spencer Parsons Introduces an iPhone to the Fingerhut

25 August 2011 11:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

In celebration of Slacker's 20th anniversary, local filmmakers are re-creating scenes from the Richard Linklater movie for Slacker 2011, a fundraising project benefitting the Texas Filmmakers Production Fund (Tfpf). As we await the August 31 premiere, we're chatting with some of the filmmakers participating in one or more of the short films that will comprise the project -- check out our interviews so far.

Today's interview is with Spencer Parsons, an Austin filmmaker who is currently working at Northwestern University in Chicago as an Assistant Professor. His work includes the feature I'll Come Running, which received two Tfpf grants and played Austin Film Festival in 2008; and the short Once and Future Asshole, which played SXSW 2005 (the cast includes Chris Doubek and Jonny Mars).

An interesting aside: Kyle Henry is another Austinite teaching at Northwestern, and in 1999, Parsons edited Henry's short doc University, Inc., about the corporatization of The University of »

Wrapping Cannes 2011. Directors' Fortnight

1 June 2011 1:26 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

To follow up on yesterday's roundup of Un Certain Regard remainders...

"The Tati-inspired dance trio of Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, and Bruno Romy are at it again, crafting an awfully similar follow-up to their previous feature, Rumba." Blake Williams for Ioncinema: "The Fairy is light on magic and the supernatural, but flutters breezily along with joke-a-minute fluff…. As in their other films, the 'plot' — this one involving a wish-granting fairy — is only really a conceit by which to give the illusion of continuity to what is essentially a string of short films." Screen's Fionnuala Halligan's enjoyed it, though: "Theirs is an old-fashioned, almost silent, routine (their first feature L'Iceberg was virtually wordless) blended beautifully with an arresting dance element." In the Hollywood Reporter, Jordan Mintzer notes that "Tati's hand is evident in the exceptionally precise art direction and camerawork by regulars Nicholas Girault and Claire Childeric."

Kyle Henry On Attending Cannes… And Skipping His Film

24 May 2011 1:56 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

I ran into filmmaker — and Filmmaker “25 New Face” — Kyle Henry at the American Pavilion in Cannes, and I was startled to learn that he was attending the festival… but skipping his screening. He offered to explain in a blog post.

Your film gets into the Directors’ Fortnight of the Cannes Film Festival, and you can’t stay for your screening… are you crazy?

Well, that was my case this year. My film Fourplay: Tampa, a short that is part of the anthology-of-shorts feature Fourplay, got the magical golden ticket to one of the festival sections at Cannes this year, the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs/Directors’ Fortnight. (For a wonderful short history of the Directors’ Fortnight, check out this article by Scott Foundas.) I’m 40 years old and also a full-time assistant professor at Northwestern University, my first tenure track job, where I’m teaching a full course load with 35 students that need my care and attention. »

Cannes 2011: Fourplay: Tampa Debuts in Directors’ Fortnight

11 May 2011 4:15 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Debuting in this year's Directors’ Fortnight (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs) is Kyle Henry's 17-minute short Fourplay: Tampa, which is the second of four Fourplay shorts set in different cities in Henry's omnibus film. Tampa premieres on May 20 at 11:30 am. Produced by Jason Wehling, the film's executive producers are Rem frontman Michael Stipe and Jim McKay. Fourplay: San Francisco played at OutFest; in March, Henry sent Tampa to Cannes and then when it was accepted. he had to finish it in time. He hopes to assemble the four shorts into an anthology feature and sell it to a distributor. Described in the Cannes Fortnight program as a "gang-bang bathroom farce" in which a self-doubting man seeks satisfaction in a mall bathroom and finds his "sexual »

Austin is All Over Cannes This Year

20 April 2011 9:01 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Richard Linklater may not be there this year to scare European journalists with his "demonic gestures" (aka the "Hook 'em" sign) but Cannes Film Festival is going to have some excellent Texas and even Austin representation in May. I mentioned one short film last week but I keep hearing more and better news.

Here's what I have so far -- feel free to comment if I missed anything. I have no clue yet whether any of the local filmmakers/writers mentioned below will actually travel to France for the festival ... I just hope the movies come back here so I can see them (if I haven't already).

The most obvious Central Texas movie at Cannes will be The Tree of Life, Terrence Malick's latest film, which we will hopefully see in Austin starting on June 4. The Tree of Life is one of the features in the main Cannes competition, »

Get Tix For Sundance Institute’S Shortslab: Chicago

12 April 2011 6:54 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Last summer in L.A. the Sundance Institute presented their first-ever ShortsLab, a day-long workshop for short filmmakers. The success of the event has led the Institute to expand ShortsLab to three cities this year with the first being Chicago on May 7 (NYC will happen on July 9 and L.A. Aug. 6).

The Chicago workshop will include seminars, screenings and panels that focus on story, production and distribution. There will also be a panel dedicated to short film programmers, as they’ll talk candidly about what films they’re looking for and give tips on how to get your short noticed.

Some of the names scheduled to attend: Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, Get Low director Aaron Schneider, director and Chicago native Kyle Henry, Kickstarter co-founder Yancey Strickler, Shorts International co-head of global acquisitions Linda Olszewski and Sundance shorts programmer Todd Luoto.

Tickets are $150 and available here. »

Heather Courtney (Where Soldiers Come From) | Video Interview - SXSW Film 2011

30 March 2011 8:15 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

It is extremely rare that I commit to doing an interview with a director prior to watching their film, but Heather Courtney proved to be an exception to that rule. There are also very few directors whose work would prompt me to stay up until 3:30 Am on the opening night of SXSW just to watch a DVD screener of their newest film, but Courtney proved to be an exception to that rule as well. I based these decisions on my respect for Courtney’s previous work (Letters from the Other Side, Los Trabajadores) and the fact that she enlisted other talented local Austin filmmakers (producer Megan Gilbride, editor Kyle Henry) to work on Where Soldiers Come From with her. Smells Like Screen Spirit's chat with Courtney at the Austin Convention Center during SXSW 2011 could have very easily turned into a very uncomfortable affair if Where Soldiers Come From did »

SXSW 2011: The Awards (So Far)

16 March 2011 10:09 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Last night, the SXSW Film Festival presented most of its awards, except for a few audience awards. It's a pleasure to see Austin-connected films all over the list. Natural Selection, shot in nearby Smithville, practically swept the Narrative Feature categories, including the Audience Award; while former/sometimes Austinites Kyle Henry and Heather Courtney won the Best Editing award in the Documentary Feature category for Where Soldiers Come From. (I agree that the editing in that film is absolutely amazing.) The Narrative Shorts jury award went to Pioneer from Dallas filmmaker David Lowery, a short that premiered at Sundance this year.

In the Texas-specific awards categories, Steve Mims and Joe Bailey's documentary Incendiary: The Willingham Case (pictured above) won the Louis Black Lone Star Award. The Texas Shorts jury award winner was 8, directed by Julie Gould and Daniel Laabs, which Don Clinchy says was "the most poignant and bittersweet film »
