The South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival revealed the highly anticipated features in the Midnighters section, as well as the complete short film lineup, which will debut at this year’s Festival from March 13 – 21, 2015 in Austin, Texas.
Entering its 22nd year, the SXSW Midnighters section is always a favorite with SXSW audiences who relish in the weird, electrifying and sometimes, downright terrifying. Featuring 11 genre films, including nine World Premieres, 2015’s Midnighter slate includes thrillers, sci-fi and dark comedies from a mix of new and veteran filmmakers. These 11 Midnighters are included in the 145 total features screening at SXSW Film 2015.
“Creepy, clever, engrossing, and frightening are just a few words that come to mind when I think about this year’s SXSW Midnighters lineup,” said SXSW Producer & Senior Programmer Jarod Neece. “These nine World Premieres and two Festival Favorites are helmed by five, first-time filmmakers and several SXSW alumni. We will be screening four films a night at midnight during all nine days of SXSW, and we can’t wait to unleash them on the SXSW audiences!”
