SXSW Film 2013 is on! We want to start the party right, so we're delighted to announce a taste of the exciting lineup we're putting together for you, including our Opening Night world premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.
As superstar Vegas magicians and former best friends Burt and Anton grow to secretly loathe each other, their long-time act implodes, allowing an ambitious rival street performer the big break he’s been waiting for. Steves Carell and Buscemi star in the hilarious, uproarious comedy. They're joined by stellar cast featuring Jim Carrey, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin and James Gandolfini in a film that pretty much guarantees a raucous start to SXSW Film 2013.
Joining The Incredible Burt Wonderstone are 6 lively films that encompass the spirit of the SXSW experience, including Alex Winter’s Napster documentary Downloaded, the long awaited Evil Dead remake and new films from Harmony Korine and Joe Swanberg. The unique documentary Good Ol’ Freda and the fresh debut of Everyone’s Going to Die round out the exciting half dozen to launch the 20th SXSW Film Conference and Festival.
