We are now only a little over a month away from the start of the annual SXSW Film Festival in Austin, and judging from the list of features that will be both premiering and screening, this year’s event should wind up being a great one. There are some fantastic filmmakers and performers bringing their latest works to this year’s festivities, and it should make a great preview of what’s to come in the rest of 2015. But amongst all of the titles, which ones are the big standouts?

You can see the entire features lineup on the SXSW homepage, but below and on the next few pages we’ve singled out the 10 big films that you will likely be hearing a lot about as the festival gets going. Check out the list, and be sure to stay tuned for over coverage once the event starts!

Trainwreck
Trainwreck
By the time that SXSW rolls around next month, Judd Apatow’s latest film, Trainwreck, still won’t be finished, but that’s not stopping the director from debuting the movie at the Austin-based festival. The film very well may be the breakout role for star Amy Schumer (who also wrote the screenplay), but she is also surrounded by a fantastic and diverse cast that includes Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer, Tilda Swinton, Lebron James, and John Cena. Last year, Nicholas Stoller’s Neighbors was the unfinished R-rated comedy to steal headlines, and in 2015 Trainwreck hopes to take that title.
