SXSW is going to the dogs.

The annual spring festival in Austin, Texas, will close out its film programming with the North American premiere of Wes Anderson’s highly anticipated Isle of Dogs, organizers announced Wednesday. Featuring stop-motion animation techniques and the voice talents of Bryan Cranston, Jeff Goldbum, Bill Murray, and more, the movie follows 12-year-old Atari Kobayashi as he journeys to an island of exiled canines in search of his dog Spots.

SXSW also unveiled selections for its Midnighters, Shorts, Virtual Cinema, Music Video, Title Sequence, and Independent Episodic categories, as well as some late-addition Features.

The Midnighters lineup features 10 genre films, including six world premieres, and brings the total number of features to be screened at this year’s festival to 132. Selections include Ghost Stories, starring Martin Freeman and based on a hit London stage play, and the world premiere of an untitled Blumhouse-Bazelevs film.

Other announced titles includes Melanie Laurent’s Galveston, starring Ben Foster and Elle Fanning, as well as Most Likely to Murder, starring Adam Pally and Rachel Bloom. The buzzed-about film Sorry to Bother You, starring Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, and Armie Hammer, will also screen as part of the Festival Favorites lineup.
