Each March, the South by Southwest Festival descends on and overtakes the city of Austin for nine days of screenings, concerts, installations and parties. For its lucky attendees, the festival is something of a paradox - a relaxing yet exhausting mix of laidback BBQs, packed concerts with up and coming buzzworthy bands, and high-profile film premieres. To salute the 25th year of SXSW, we are offering a collection of our favorite films from festivals past. So if you couldn’t make it out this year, sit back and soak up a bit of the SXSW atmosphere at your computer. Enjoy!
