We realize mumblecore isn't a word found in Merriam-Webster (despite the inclusion of twerk last year). It's a style of filmmaking, known for its lo-fi aesthetic and the use of non-professional actors. After several prominent SXSW debuts in the mid-2000s, a mumblecore movement has proliferated; this club steeps its work in experiences that we can all relate to, and includes many distinguished directors: Andrew Bujalski, Alex Ross Perry, Lynn Shelton, Sophia Takal, Joe Swanberg, the Duplass Brothers, Ry Russo-Young, Todd Rohal, Josephine Decker, Charles Poekel, Bradley Rust Gray, and David and Nathan Zellner.
