SXSW: Awards for Windmill, Short Term 12

Film festival organisers announced on Tuesday night [12] the jury and special award winners.

“We start each year anew, never knowing what’s ahead,” said film conference and festival producer Janet Pierson. “We fall in love with the films as we programme, but they truly come alive in front of our audience, and the feedback for the entire programme this year has been so enthusiastic and rewarding.

“We know the juries had a tough job, but are grateful for their commitment to the task.  We’re thrilled with the quality of the work recognised.”

Audience award winners will be revealed on Mar 16. For the full list of winners announced on Tuesday visit here.
