SXSW Announces 2015 Film Lineup
Screenings include indies, docs, and foreign films, as well as features by Wim Wenders, Hal Hartley, Ryan Gosling, Alex Garland, and George Miller.
Now that Sundance is over, the eyes of the film world turn towards Austin, Texas. From March 13–21, the film portion of the sprawling festival giant known as SXSW will be in full swing, highlighting new work from fresh and established filmmakers alike.
Nearly one hundred and fifty feature films will be screened within the week-long event, including Alex Gibney’s documentary Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine, Paul Feig’s Spy, Robert Duvall’s Wild Horses, Colin Hanks’s Tower Records documentary All Things Must Pass, Laura Gabbert’s documentary on Pulitzer Prize–winning food writer Jonathan Gold (City of Gold), Etan Cohen’s Get Hard, Ryan Gosling’s puzzling directorial debut Lost River, Alex Garland‘s first directorial effort Ex Machina, and Wim Wenders and Jiliano Salgado’s documentary of photographer Sebastião Salgado The Salt of the Earth.
Beyond showing upcoming releases, SXSW Film 2015 will have special screenings of classics like George Miller’s original Road Warrior (while we anxiously await the reboot), Jonathan Demme Presents Made in Texas, and a Doug Benson Interruption of Leprechaun 3, and a “work in progress” of Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck (starring Amy Schumer).
