Film news updates.
Along with the rest of the international film community, SXSW is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of film critic, blogger and the filmmaker's film lover, Roger Ebert.
We were honored to host Ebert as a juror for our 2011 Film Festival, where his jury selected Natural Selection as the Narrative Feature Competition winner (star Rachael Harris & filmmaker Robbie Pickering pictured above with the Eberts). In his long and storied career, Ebert has regularly championed the work of new and emerging filmmakers, and in the 2011 edition of his beloved Ebertfest, SXSW alumni Tiny Furniture, 45365 and Natural Selection were all invited as part of his personally curated program.

Paul Gordon's The Happy Poet delighted SXSW audiences during the 2010 edition. Well now the "all organic, mostly vegetarian comedy" finally hits the big screen again.
The film will receive a one week engagement at Santa Monica's Laemmle 4-plex this Friday, March 22. Director Paul Gordon and producer David Hartstein will conduct Q&As following the Friday and Saturday 7:30pm screenings. For more info check out this page and head here for tickets.
Haim, CHVRCHES and The Flaming Lips are winners of the Inaugural Grulke Prize at SXSW 2013
We're pleased to announce the winners of the first annual Grulke Prize. The Prize, awarded in three categories, was developed in honor of our friend and colleague Creative Director Brent Grulke, who passed away on August 13, 2012. Brent's love of music and the spirit of the festival is reflected in the three Prize categories: Developing US Act, Developing Non-US Act and Career Act.
