For the first time in a few years, ComingSoon.net will be down in Austin, Texas for the annual South by SouthWest Film Festival, running from March 8 through March 16, with our writers Edward Douglas and Joshua Starnes seeing movies, sharing their opinions and hopefully talking to some of the directors and cast.
It began as a music festival where bands and music industry types could get together and bond and maybe even sign a couple deals, but in 1994 they added the “Film and Multimedia Conference" which essentially broke off into a full-fledged film festival that lasts nine days.
This year's film section is kicking off on Friday, March 8, with two big movies opening in the coming weeks, the magical comedy Evil Dead
(Tristar Pictures - April 5), which is quite a double feature. We'll have reviews of both of those by this coming Saturday, March 9.
