The Austin Chronicle

Best of Austin FSR

Considering our exhaustive coverage of SXSW and Fantastic Fest; our nomination of Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League for a Nobel Peace Prize; and our weekly spotlight on Austin filmmaking from Don Simpson, Film School Rejects has embraced its headquarters home since even before we moved there. We recognize that we’re a small part of a very large movie family here, but we hope that we’re a unique voice advocating for this fair city to the rest of the world. As a fan of the site, we’re humbly asking you to please vote for us in The Austin Chronicle’s Best of Austin Poll Ballot. It requires that you give your address information (to confirm your Austin-ness), and the list is extensive, but it also gives you a chance to share your opinion when it comes to the best restaurants, concerts, hiking trails and more. For your consideration:



What is Movie News After Dark? Most of the time it’s a nightly dose of movie news from around the world. Sometimes it feels like a sentient being hell-bent on enslaving humanity. Tonight it’s taking the night off from both quests to celebrate a most favorite holiday in the land of the Reject, April Fools’ Day. There were a great many pranks on the web this year, and we’d like to point out our favorites, movie-related or otherwise. Then we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled shenanigans Sunday night. We begin tonight with a story from our own home town, Austin, TX, featuring a good friend of the site, critic Scott Weinberg. As you can see in the image above, The Austin Chronicle‘s front page story (and most of the article, for that matter) was about “The Dome,” a city planning solution to completely contain the riff-raff during SXSW. Excellent.

Some movie websites serve the consumer. Some serve the industry. At Film School Rejects, we serve at the pleasure of the connoisseur. We provide the best reviews, interviews and features to millions of dedicated movie fans who know what they love and love what they know.
