Austin, Texas is the place to be this spring if you want the chance to catch first sight of some of the exciting titles that will be doing the festival circuit over the year to come. Texas itself features quite a bit, but there are also films from around the world, including a particularly impressive selection of documentaries. Taking place alongside the famous music festival of the same name, SXSW is strong on musical themes.
