"Prairie" to Open the 2006 SXSW Film Festival
Robert Altman's screen adaptation of "A Prairie Home Companion" got the honor to open the 2006 South by Southwest Film Festival or known as the SXSW Film Festival, so the event's organizer has announced on Tuesday. "I can't think of a more perfect opening night film than A Prairie Home Companion," Matt Dentler, the producer of SXSW Film Festival, commented. "Not only do you have great masters like Robert Altman and Garrison Keillor involved, but it's also a celebration of entertainment and the creative spirit."
Starring Tommy Lee Jones, Meryl Streep, and Lindsay Lohan, the movie will head to the theatres in June following its North American premiere at the festival.
Runs from March 10 to 18 in Austin, Texas, the festival itself also included other films to be its premieres, namely LoudQuietLoud: A Film About Pixies, The Notorious Bettie Page, Tales of the Rat Fink, and The King.
