Thompson on Hollywood
Between March 12 and 20th, Austin's SXSW Film Fest will mount some 80 film panels featuring guests such as Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Pixar exec Susan Bradley, David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), and Quentin Tarantino (Inglorious Bastards), who is speaking on a genre directors panel.

Film Conference producer Janet Pierson has also booked "The Insider's Guide to Independent Film Packaging in a Troubled Economy," "Reel To Reality: How Good Film Does Good," "Sustainable Filmmaking Workshop," and "A Conversation with MacGruber."

Here's a taste of the 130 shorts over ten categories, including Midnight ("bite-sized bits for all of your sex, gore, and hilarity needs"),Texas ("somehow relating to the Lone Star state") and Future States ("What is the America of the future?"):

Narrative: Televisnu (Prithi Gowda). An Indian woman’s computer leads to a magical web of wires, memories and more.
Documentary: Solitary/Release (Holden Abigail Osborne). Explores the life of a recovering drug addict on the verge of great change.
Experimental: The Bellows March (Eric Dyer). Hand-paints 3-D "cinetropes."
Texas: Mnemosyne Rising (Miguel Alvarez). A deep-space pilot is told he’s being sent back to Earth.
Future State: Plastic Bag (Ramin Bahrani). Follows a bag as it searches for its long lost master through a barren American landscape.

    Anne! The funniest thing just happened. Another Anne Thompson left a comment on my blog and I clicked the link to find out about her and it took me to you and so then I was like FREAKING out and super excited that the likes of THE Anne Thompson would visit me.

    But alas, I did some more digging and low and behold was a lowly, albeit awesome, memory box maker from Maine.

    Anywho, I just wanted to say you are uber cool and I had a really good day there for about fifteen minutes or so.

    Cheers!
