The 2005 edition of the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival has announced its annual call for entries. Submissions in all categories are now being accepted by the festival, and applicants can submit via the festival Web site ( The 2005 festival will be held March 11-19, 2005 in Austin, TX.

films and panels, as well as scouting for SXSW at other events.

"It's a total pleasure to have John on board with us," says Dentler.
"I've admired his work in the business for years, and I know he'll add
a tremendous amount of excitement to SXSW."

In addition to this, popular comic actor and Mr. Show co-creator Bob
Odenkirk has signed on to create the festival trailers for SXSW 2005.
Odenkirk's feature directorial debut, "Melvin Goes To Dinner," won an

screen before each program at the 2005 festival. Past trailer creators
include: Ron Mann, Lee Daniel, and Dan Brown.

SXSW 2004 selections that have obtained distribution since screening at
