Welcome to The (Mostly) Indie Film Calendar, a weekly look at what's happening beyond the multiplexes all around North America. If you know of something indie-related happening near you -- a local festival, a series of classic restored films, lectures, workshops, etc. -- send the info to me at Eric.Snider(at)weblogsinc(dot)com and I'll add it to the list.

This week we're a little preoccupied with South By Southwest, which kicks off today and runs through next week. Several Cinematical staffers (including yours truly) are moseying along the streets of Austin as we speak, and we'll have a heapin' helpin' of mighty fine SXSW coverage here for the next seven days.

In the meantime, there's plenty of indie-related film merriment for you to enjoy elsewhere in the country -- including a few flicks opening today in limited release:
  • Snow Angels is the latest from David Gordon Green (All the Pretty Girls, George Washington), a contemplative drama about a town rocked by a tragedy. Cinematical's Kevin Kelly didn't think too highly of it at Sundance last year, but James Rocchi loved it.
