I am back on the mainland and blogging from Seattle with South Austin in the rearview mirror. Don't worry Virgin Island fans, I will most certainly be back in the Caribbean for visits if not full-time. And I'm sure St. Thomas will creep it's way into many future posts. For now, it's all about living in the Pacific Northwest!

SXSW Film Festival Wrap Up

Alright... I've just read my last post and found it uninteresting. I have again allowed too much time between the experience and the accounting of the experience. So, I'm skipping forward here. Drumroll please...

Total Film Count for 2011 SXSW Film Festival: 28 1/2!!!!! (I do a slight curtsy here)

1.    Vimeo Shorts (count 7)
2.    Tiny Furniture
3.    A Year in Mooring
4.    A Bag of Hammers
5.    Page One: Inside the New York Times
6.    Conan O'Brien Can't Stop
7.    Fuck My Life
8.    Fightville
9.    Narrative Shorts 3 (count 10) Boobie and Chalk were stand outs. 

Boobie Two young men find themselves at a precarious crossroads during a typical afternoon of horseplay. BOY A 10 year old experiences a rite of passage that will forever change him. Chalk Two teenage professional gymnasts are competing in a national training camp. Eat After locking herself out of her apartment, a young woman finds herself... EX-SEX He broke her heart. Then she broke his. The Good Neighbor A man tries to surprise his neighbor with dinner and wine. Roosevelt's Big Deal Don't lose your shirt on a dinner with the coach. A SHORE THING A couple spends a lovely day at the beach arguing about love. Slow Dance A stunning slow-motion bar brawl.

11.  Armadillo
12.  Wasted on the Young
13.  Happy New Year (this is the 1/2)
14.  Incendiary: The Willingham Case

This was a great festival. Unfortunately, the big award winners were one's that I did not see. I guess I'll have to catch them as encores next year.  I did have a chance to catch a few music performances during all of the SXSW Film madness. I'll post about that soon (I promise).
