The complete feature line-up for SXSW can be found here at indieWIRE. Special congrats to IFC News‘ own Aaron Hillis, whose documentary "Fish Kill Flea" is in the Emerging Visions program; also to our friends The Wowz, who worked on the soundtrack for Aaron Woolf‘s "King Corn" (also in Emerging Visions). And the parent network will be there in full effect for the world premiere of "Does Your Soul Have a Cold?," the new documentary from Mike Mills about depression and the pharmaceutical industry in Japan. The doc will premiere on IFC this fall.
Others we’re looking forward to: In Emerging Visions, Grace Lee‘s "American Zombie," which we failed to catch at Slamdance; Craig Zobel‘s "Great World of Sound"; Gary Hustwit‘s doc about a font, "Helvetica" ; and Aaron Katz‘s "Quiet City." In 24 Beats Per Second, Michael Tully‘s "Silver Jew" profiles the great Silver Jews. In the Midnight program, there’s New Zealand horror-comedy "Black Sheep"; Felicity-eats-people (we hope) film "Grimm Love"; and "The Signal," which we missed at Sundance but which IFC News’ Michael Scasserra loved.
Amongst the big premieres, there’s "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane," which was snapped up at Toronto by the Weinsteins; Johnny To‘s "Exiled"; Joe Swanberg‘s "Hannah Takes the Stars," which features an all-star line-up of other indie directors; and AJ Schnack‘s "Kurt Cobain About a Son."
