In the Narrative Feature Competition, the horror film "96 Minutes" and the drama "A Year in Mooring" will compete against six other movies for the festival’s Grand Jury and Audience prizes.
The film festival will include 60 world premieres, 12 North American premieres, and 16 U.S. premieres that were chosen from more than 5000 submissions.
And while some of these selections may seem a bit lowbrow for a major U.S. film festival, SXSW actually strives to have an eclectic mix of genres represented each year. "We skew young, edgy, we're not as politically correct, we can do humor, we can go grosser," says film conference and festival producer Janet Pierson.
