That time of year has come once again. Over the course of the next week, the SXSW Film Festival will be in full effect down in Austin, Texas, and just like every year, the line-up for 2016 is completely jam-packed with a wide variety of eclectic and interesting titles. There are dark dramas, crazy comedies, period coming-of-age movies, and even an R-rated animated adventure about anthropomorphized food in a grocery store. And those are only some of the features that we’re excited to see.

We will be on the ground in Austin for the next few days, not only watching films but interviewing the brilliant minds who made them possible. In particular, though, there are eight movies that we are beyond ecstatic to check out at SXSW… and we guarantee you’ll be hearing a lot more about these movies in the next few days!

Everybody Wants Some
Everybody Wants Some
Richard Linklater is a true legend around Austin, having broken out in the industry thanks to his first feature, Slacker, which was set in and around the Texas capital. Because of this, it only makes sense that the premiere of his latest film would happen at SXSW. Everybody Wants Some has been described by Linklater as a spiritual sequel to the brilliant modern classic Dazed and Confused, and will follow a group of college students living life in the 1980s. It’s the film that the writer/director has been working on since he finally felt ready to unleash Boyhood to the world, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what he’s made.
