What Is the Best Movie Poster at SXSW?

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.
