A Quick and Dirty Guide to Choosing a Movie at SXSW

By  · Published on March 10th, 2011

So you’ve eaten at Pita Pit and Best Wurst (because there’s nothing wrong with two lunches) and you’re scoping out theaters ready to get more movies on, but you have no idea what you’re going to see. That teary indie drama or that ridiculous sci-fi comedy?

You don’t know do you? And you can’t figure it out on your own for some reason.

Fortunately, we’ve created this handy guide to help you in your time of duress.

Use it wisely. There’s no chance it’ll send you to the porno theater across the highway, so if you end up there, it’s on you.

You know what’s great about this flowchart?

It features 43 great movies playing the festival, and SXSW has over 250 movies playing. There’s a huge amount of options here, and it’s only the tip of the ice berg.
