Earlier today, the SXSW announced their line for the 2014 SWSX Film Festival which is scheduled to take place from March 7-15 in Austin, Texas.
The film festival had a record breaking 2,215 feature-length film submissions this year. Of the 115 titles that were selected to be shown at the festival, there are a total of 76 world premieres, 10 North American Premieres, and 7 U.S. Premieres. Out of those same 115 films, first-time filmmakers account for 68 of those films.
They are also debuting a new category at this year’s festivities. It will be called the “Episodic” category. This category will highlight the new work that will be hitting the small screens. One of the shows that will be featured in the new category this year is the upcoming Showtime Original Series Penny Dreadful.
There are still two categories in which they have not announced as of yet. Those are the Midnighter features section and their Short Film Program. Both of those are expected to be announced on Wednesday, February 5th.
Now, let’s take a look at the films you can expect to see at the SXSW Film Festival in March.
