Austin's South by Southwest Film Festival, started in 1993, has grown into a worldwide event, highlighting Austin's vibrant film community.
"What we decided to do was to create something to sort of cultivate the relationships in Austin and sort of share that with the rest of the world, and luckily, over the last few years especially we've noticed more and more of the world taking notice," says Matt Dentler, producer of the SXSW Film Festival.
The 2005 festival included the premiere of The Wendell Baker Story, by Luke, Andrew, and Owen Wilson, as well as the experimental Four Eyed Monsters and several music-related documentaries. To learn more about the festival and some of the filmmakers involved, view the clip.
