Faces of Austin is an annual program showcasing short films by local filmmakers, reflecting the diverse faces, voices, and experiences of our City.
Each year, the films selected for Faces of Austin will have a premiere screening during the SXSW Film Festival in March as part of a Community Screening event. The films will also be shown on ATXN, via the City's website, and at special screenings throughout the year. There is a cash honorarium for each selected short film and a prize for the Judge's Choice.
