Best of the Fests: SXSW 2008

The South by Southwest Film Festival kicks off today in Austin, Texas; of special note is this Sunday's world premiere of Beautiful Losers, a new feature documentary from directors Aaron Rose and Joshua Leonard that explores the creative ethos driving youth culture and popular art today:

"For over a decade, outsider sub-cultures have influenced the mainstream ... First a traveling museum exhibition and book,Beautiful Losers, is now an unique documentary celebrating the independent and D.I.Y. spirit that unified a loose-knit group of American artists who emerged from the underground worlds of skateboarding, graffiti, punk and hip hop."

For more information on Beautiful Losers and to watch the trailer, visit the film's official website.

UPDATE: IndieWire is reporting that Nike (yes, that Nike) is spear-heading the theatrical release of Beautiful Losers.
