Directed by 24 Austin Filmmakers - Meet the Filmmakers

Interviews with SLACKER 2011 Filmmakers at Slackerwood and The Austin Chronicle

Richard Linklater's SLACKER inspired a generation of American filmmakers by exploring the subculture of Austin, Texas in a loose narrative with a tapestry of quirky characters. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of that iconic movie, 24 of Austin's top filmmakers banded together to update SLACKER with their own perspectives on the city. SLACKER 2011 is a stream-of-consciousness chronicle of a day in Austin, presenting the city-dwellers, dragworms, proto-hipsters and locations that give the city its modern identity. The film showcases a transformed town next to things that never change. SLACKER 2011 is an homage to twenty years of independent filmmaking, presenting the city’s changing face and showcasing some of its most exciting talent.

"SLACKER 2011 came off as a beautiful work of jazz, with each segment representing an instrumental solo. At times dark and tempestuous (Mingus-Parsons) and at others lyrically rhythmic, playful and exaggerated (Monk-Doubek) or rapid bursts of color (Parker-Coleman) the film showcased individual voices while still holding its center as a single work of art."--Matthew Odam, The Austin American-Statesman

"SLACKER 2011 succeeds — if not, exceeds — in its mission to capture Austin 20 years after Linklater’s version; cleverly commenting on how many things have changed, yet so much has stayed the same. We might keep getting older, but Austin continues to stay weird."--Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit

"A charming, sometime very funny snapshot of contemporary Austin."--Kimberly Jones, The Austin Chronicle
