The SXSW Conference and SXSW Film Festival closed with the highly anticipated world premiere of the new Wes Anderson film "Isle of Dogs". Anderson and some of the stars of the film walked the red carpet before the screening at the Paramount Theatre.

The film tells the story of 12-year-old Atari Kobayashi who sets off alone in search of his bodyguard dog Spots. Spots was exiled, along with all canine pets, to a vast garbage dump called Trash Island by executive decree by the mayor of Megasaki City. With the help of a pack of newly found dogs, Kobayashi begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and the future of not just his friends but the entire prefecture.

Anderson and stars Bill Murray, Jeff Goldbum, Bob Balaban and Kunichi Nomura were on hand for the premiere. The film all star cast also includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Greta Gerwig, Scarlett Johansson and more.
