Musicians don't have all the fun at the annual SXSW (South by Southwest) festival. For filmmakers, the Austin-based festival's extraordinary film leg, this year running March 12-20, is the major draw. That's because the nine-day portion provides filmmakers a rare, unbiased creative environment, where a dynamic mix of both emerging and established talents are considered one and the same.

That's because the nine-day portion provides filmmakers a rare, unbiased creative environment, in which a dynamic mix of both emerging and established talents are considered one and the same.

This year's showcase will feature movies from a variety of genres, formats and size, including big-studio headliners like 'SNL' spin-off 'MacGruber,' lesser-known indies like comedy 'Tiny Furniture' and everything in between. And of the multitude of films to make their stamp on this year's gathering, some will go on to box-office success, others will garner critical acclaim and a few may end up back on the shelf. But the beauty of SXSW is that for the next nine days, every single film has the same opportunity to shine. (Check out our SXSW Film Preview: Hot Festival Picks for more on the films).
