“As we head into our 26th edition, we couldn’t be more excited to once again share a completely fresh SXSW 2019 slate with our uniquely smart and enthusiastic SXSW audience,” said Janet Pierson, Director of Film. “As always, we looked for a wide range of work, contemplating scale, style, tenor and tone. We hope that this year’s outstanding array of films from accomplished to emerging talent will entertain, surprise, and provoke.”

The categories that were announced today include: Narrative Feature Competition, Documentary Feature Competition, Headliners, Narrative Spotlight, Documentary Spotlight, Visions, Midnighters, 24 Beats Per Second, Global, Festival Favorites, and Special Events. Films screening in Festival Favorites, Midnighters, Shorts, Virtual Cinema, Episodic Pilot Competition, Title Design Competition, Music Videos, and late-breaking Features will be announced on February 6.

Some exciting films were announced as playing at the festival, such as the newest film by Harmony Korine starring Matthew McConaughey — The Beach Bum, Good Boys — a raunchy comedy starring Jacob Tremblay, and a yet untitled comedy starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron. On the indie front are some intriguing selections like a new film by Robert Rodriguez entitled Red 11 and a movie called The Art of Self Defense starring Jesse Eisenberg. In terms of episodics, the festival will debut several promising new shows, including the TV series adaptation of What We Do in the Shadows!
