SXSW announces Song To Song, from celebrated director Terrence Malick will make its World Premiere Friday March 10, 2017, during the 24th edition of the SXSW Film Festival. Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, and Natalie Portman star in this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, as two entangled couples chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.
We’re also delighted to announce Eshom and Ian Nelms’ hybrid action thriller with dark humor Small Town Crime; Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen’s lyrical portrait of a tiny hill town in Tuscany, Spettacolo, the second feature after their award-winning Marwencol; first time filmmaker Jennifer Reeder’s coming-of-age Muslim melodrama Signature Move starring Fawzia Mirza; and Latin American phenomenon René Pérez Joglar’s chronicle of his global exploration of his genetic roots in Residente.
In their highly successful Episodic section, we will be featuring the world premiere of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, directed by David Slade. The first of many projects in SXSW Film’s new VR/AR strand is Viacom NEXT’s The Melody of Dust, an invitation inside the tortured mind of an artist.
