Earlier this month, we reported on the first wave of SXSW 2013 films, which includes The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Evil Dead. Today, the full line-up has been announced, and it feels like Sundance all over again when it comes to plenty of unknown films. The chance of discovering a gem is high, and I look forward to hearing the buzz that arises from some these movies. There’s also a second chance at festival films I missed like The Act of Killing (from TIFF) and Pit Stop (from Sundance). I thought Toy’s House would make it in to SXSW, but I’ll see it eventually since it picked up distribution.
Hit the jump for the full line-up. The 2013 SXSW Film Festival runs from March 8 – 17th.
SXSW 2013 has announced their first wave of films, and the comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone will open this year’s festival. That’s a huge vote of confidence for the film (last year’s opener was The Cabin in the Woods), which stars Steve Carell as a Vegas magician whose relationship with his partner (Steve Buscemi) becomes strained as the two start getting upstaged by a hipper illusionist (Jim Carrey). SXSW has also revealed that they’ll host the premiere of Fede Alvarez‘ Evil Dead remake, and they’ll also be showing off Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers, which should be a perfect fit for the festival.
Hit the jump to check out the first wave of films announced for SXSW 2013 as well as highlights from the 2013 conference. The majority of the festival line-up will be announced on January 31st. The 2013 SXSW Film Festival runs from March 8 – 17th.
