When you talk with narrative filmmakers they often express that they have loved movies for as long as they can remember. Some pursue this passion from a young age, diving head first into filmmaking, while others follow different career paths that ultimately lead them to the same place. While the creativity and inspiration for the narrative films at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival varies widely, one thing quite a few films have in common is that they were edited with Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

Here, we look at four films that could have come directly from today’s headlines.
