SXSW 2013: Features Lineup Announced

sxsw 2013 filmHere’s a pointer to the initial list of feature-length non-fiction and fiction films screening at this year’s SXSW – Midnighters and Shorts will be announced next Wednesday, February 6, with panels to follow on Wednesday, February 13. Out of the 110 films announced today – culled by Janet Pierson and her team from over 2000 feature submissions – by my count, just shy of half are documentaries. Beyond the all-non-fiction Documentary Feature Competition and Documentary Spotlight, one or more docs appear in every section announced today (aside from the fiction-exclusive Narrative Feature Competition and Narrative Spotlight).

Following is the list of documentary features, broken down by section. For descriptions, check out the link above:
