Matt Dentler revving up SXSW Film Fest
As film aficionados turn their attention toward Austin for this year's SXSW Festival -- which kicks off Friday with the world premiere of The Lookout -- Anne Thompson profiles the festival's wunderkind director, Matt Dentler. Meanwhile, Film Threat launches SXSW coverage with a posting by the site's self-proclaimed "Editor-in-BBQ Sauce," Mark Bell. Given the ubiquity of tasty barbecue throughout Austin -- and especially at Iron Works BBQ, conveniently located near the festival's press office in the Austin Convention Center --I'll predict Bell will have a lot on his plate even when he's not attending screenings. Come to think of it, so will I.
