"Hawking" is the extraordinary story of the planet’s most famous living scientist, told for the first time in his own words and by those closest to him. Made with unique access to Hawking’s private life, this is an intimate and moving journey into Stephen's world, both past and present. An inspirational portrait of an iconic figure, Hawking relates his incredible personal journey from boyhood under-achiever, to PhD genius, to being diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease and given just two years to live.
SXSW Film 2013 News, Reviews, and More
Stay tuned for the latest Film Festival recaps
MIPTV’s 50th anniversary edition kicks off in Cannes April 8 and whether you’re in Cannes or not, the celebrations will be easily accessible online!
MIPBlog will feature key conference live blogging of sessions, including showrunners and directors Eli Roth (Hostel), David S Goyer (The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Howard Gordon (Homeland), as well as interviews with stars such as Gene Simmons (KISS) and actress Famke Janssen.
Along with the rest of the international film community, SXSW is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of film critic, blogger and the filmmaker's film lover, Roger Ebert.
We were honored to host Ebert as a juror for our 2011 Film Festival, where his jury selected Natural Selection as the Narrative Feature Competition winner (star Rachael Harris & filmmaker Robbie Pickering pictured above with the Eberts). In his long and storied career, Ebert has regularly championed the work of new and emerging filmmakers, and in the 2011 edition of his beloved Ebertfest, SXSW alumni Tiny Furniture, 45365 and Natural Selection were all invited as part of his personally curated program.
