SXSW Film Conference & Festival champions the vitality, innovation and opportunity that drives the entertainment and media landscape, and boldly tackles the evolution of all aspects of “film” today, down to its very definition.
A nexus of discovery and collaborative energy, SXSW Film celebrates the art and business of the possible.
BEFORE MIDNIGHT Headliners, 2013
We've been following Jesse and Celine's journey for the last 18 years since Before Sunrise hit the screens in 1995. Now director Richard Linklater, along with actors/co-screenwriters Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, invite us back into their world as we find Jesse and Celine dealing with the joys and trials of long-term love and raising a family. Life's gotten real for these once strangers on a train and our time with them is rewarded in this candid look at what comes after. This masterpiece is a stunning achievement from Linklater and a rare treat in a world that often seems limited to only the beginnings.

Jonathan Demme presents this feature debut from writer/director Adam Leon.

Gimme the Loot won the Grand Jury Prize at last year's fest so this is some quality celluloid, y'all. Out now (Austin)
