SXSW Film Fest 2009: Mumblecore Has Made It!

Joe Swanberg's ALEXANDER THE LAST is one of three “mumblecore” films screening at the 2009 SXSW Film Festival that will also be available in 30 million homes across the country via IFC Films' Festival Direct on-demand platform. The virtual film festival kicks off this weekend in conjunction with the start of SXSW giving film lovers coast-to-coast the unprecedented opportunity to experience a major film festival as it happens, right from their own living room. Joining ALEXANDER THE LAST are “mumblecore” films MEDICINE FOR MELANCHOLY and PAPER COVERS ROCK, as well as the Australian comedy THREE BLIND MICE and the Bulgarian neo-noir ZIFT.
Whether or not you will be attending SXSW, we hope you will help us spread the word about this innovative new festival experience.
