Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

The SXSW Film Festival, the most relevant independent film gathering in the United States alongside the Sundance Film Festival, is ready to get under way today, 9 March. The event will unspool until 18 March and has once again invited a clutch of films from Europe to be screened in its various sections.

While the Narrative Feature and the Documentary Feature Competition, as well as the Headliners section, are mostly dedicated to US productions (save for Stanley Tucci’s UK-US production Final Portrait [+lee también:

, which will be screened in the latter), the Narrative and Documentary Spotlight, plus the Visions section, include some European talent.

The first feature by French filmmaker Jérémie Guez, the French-Belgian co-production A Bluebird in My Heart, will have its world premiere in the Narrative Spotlight section. Guez, who previously collaborated on writing the screenplays of Yves Saint Laurent [+lee también:

 by British filmmaker Finlay Pretsell, and the Austrian-US co-production The Dawn Wall by Josh Lowell and Peter Mortimer, both of which world-premiered at Amsterdam’s IDFA last November.

One of the most original offerings is probably Elizabeth Harvest, which is touted as a science-fiction reimagining of the French folktale of Bluebeard. The UK-US co-production, directed by Sebastian Gutierrez and starring Abbey Lee, Ciaran Hinds and Carla Gugino, will have its world premiere at the festival.

Lastly, the parallel Global and Festival Favorites sections will welcome titles such as Annika Berg’s Team Hurricane [+lee también:
