Where to Watch 52 SXSW 2012 Alumni Online

If you're not going to be in Austin for South by Southwest this weekend, here's a decent alternative: watch last year's highlights from home.

"[REC] 3: Genesis."
"[REC] 3: Genesis."

The 2013 South By Southwest Film Festival gets underway this Friday with the world premiere of "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," and continues for the next eight days with dozens of movies from around the world. I'll be down in Austin for the festival, reviewing movies for ScreenCrush and moderating a panel on -- what else? -- the state of film criticism. 

If you're not headed down south (by southwest) this week, allow me to a suggest an alternative entertainment plan: watch something from last year's festival at home. According to Criticwire's advanced team of scientists and their first-of-its-kind proprietary metric -- i.e. Criticwire Assistant Editor Steve Greene and Google -- there are 52 SXSW '12 alumni currently available to rent, stream, or own right now on your gaming console, computer, tablet or, (God help us all) your phone.

Here is a list of those alumni, arranged by delivery method. To prevent it from becoming an eyesore, I've only included one outlet for each film, but if a title is included below, the odds are pretty good you can watch it on a variety of platforms. So, for example, if you're not a Netflix subscriber and you want to watch "Indie Game: The Movie," you still can -- it's also available for rent on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and YouTube. If you see something you want to watch, but not the way you want to watch it, do a little more digging and you'll probably find it.

Without further ado or bad jokes, here are...
