'We couldn't be more delighted with SXSW 2009 line-up,' Film Conference and Festival producer Janet Pierson said. 'It's a great continuation of the quality SXSW is known for: plenty of compelling, new film-making talent across all budget lines, engaging documentaries ranging from the socially conscious to the hilarious, electrifying music films, prominent Texas themes, cutting edge and smart Hollywood films, and an even greater exploration into global cinema.'
