Mike Jones over at Variety's The Circuit Blog has a post up today about Southslam. Much as Slamdance sprung up to screen edgy films that slipped through the cracks at Sundance, apparently Southslam has arisen to do the same for South by Southwest. I thought perhaps Mike was joking when he said that Southslam intends to screen every film they get; perhaps, I thought, he just meant that they promise to watch every film they get? And then screen the ones that don't suck?

But no, a quick pop over to the Southslam website reveals that yes, indeed, they are promising to screen each and every film that enters. Every short film, feature film, music video, documentary, and even "works-in-progress." Oh boy. That's almost worth checking out just to see what they end up getting, isn't it?
