Many of you may remember my article last month about a great little animated short, called "Bygone Behemoth", which chronicled the day-to-day events in the life of a retired stop-motion movie monster.
Well, today I have two great posters for the films debut at SXSW in Austin, Texas, this weekend, plus information on when it will be screening at the event.

Here is the official synopsis from the SXSW website:
'Bygone Behemoth' presents a day-in-the-life of an unemployed B-Movie monster, a lingering personified special-effect of the 1950's.

And here are the screening times for "Bygone Behemoth" at the event:
Sunday, March 14 01:30 PM at Alamo Lamar 1
Tuesday, March 16 11:00 AM at Alamo Lamar 1
Wednesday, March 17 01:30 PM at Alamo Lamar 1
