Like Sundance, this year's SXSW Film lineup is stacked with Austin made films. It has nothing to do with playing favorites, it is the fact that Austin is a hub for independent cinema; at this point it might be off the mark to call it a community, it's a movement! While you're mapping your schedule for the festival, be sure to check out some of Austin's greatest hits below:
