South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) is now underway and features a host of films and episodic premieres starring Curtis Brown clients.

Mia Goth leads X - Ti West's homage to 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' which premiered on Sunday 13th March to rave reviews. West's 'feminist horror film' (Variety) follows a group of renegades who rent a Texas barn to shoot a porn film, which soon escalates into a summer night massacre. West also announced at the premiere that Mia will reprise her 'doubly effective' performance (Den Of Geek) in the prequel film Pearl.

Elliot Edusah, Tosin Cole, Shiloh Coke, and Tsion Habte all star in Pirates: Reggie Yates' acclaimed comedy drama following three lifelong friends on the brink of adulthood on New Year's Eve 1999.

Tosin Cole also stars in 61st Street as 'Moses', a 17 year old track star from the South Side of Chicago who is caught up in a drug bust gone dangerously wrong, but is protected by a Public Defender who can't bear to see another boy from the South Side caught up in the system.

Daniel Monks stars in Sissy, a darkly comic satire directed by Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes offering a 'murderous look at the perils of influencer culture' (Bloody Disgusting).

With casting by Olivia Scott-Webb, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent premiered on Saturday 12th March. This new action adventure from Tom Gormican stars Nicholas Cage as a fictionalised movie star who accepts an offer to attend a super fan's birthday, which takes a wildly unexpected turn...
