The powers that be behind the SXSW Film Festival have let loose a brief, early glimpse at this year's program, and so far, so good. A big highlight looks to be the world premiere of  LoudQUIETloud: A Film About Pixies,  Steve Cantor and Matthew Galkin's documentary on last year's most unlikely reunion tour. Also worth looking forward to: Mary Harron's The Notorious Bettie Page, and a retrospective dedicated to the film work of Kris Kristofferson (which we can only hope includes Barbra Streisand's 70s vanity remake of A Star is Born). More films will be announced early next month. In related news, the early lineup for the music festival has hit the SXSW homepage as well. Four words: Echo and the Bunnymen. Once again, SXSW has made Karina Longworth a very happy girl.
