Tonight is awards night at South By Southwest. In addition to the typical set of fest awards for documentaries, narratives and shorts, SXSW makes a special point to give honors to outstanding film-related design, specifically for title sequences and posters. About 99 posters of films from the festival are eligible for the award, voted on by the pubic. A full slideshow of the posters can be found on Flickr – here are nine that I think are the top contenders – see below the image for descriptions of each.
To win your own classic movie poster, be sure to play the Fandor Indie Movie Challenge.
