City invites submissions for annual short film showcase

Monday, December 9, 2019 by Tai Moses

Attention local filmmakers: The city’s Economic Development Department has issued a call for submissions of short films for the 2020 “Faces of Austin” program. The selected films will be screened in March at South by Southwest as a showcase for “the diverse faces, voices and experiences of Austin,” according to the news release. Cultural Arts Division Manager Meghan Wells said, “From light-hearted profiles of Austin locales to moving tributes of individuals who have shaped the fabric of our city, this program serves as an important outlet for Austin’s creative community.” Last year, 13 films were chosen from over 70 submissions. The shorts will also be shown on ATXN and via the city website. Submissions are due by Monday, Jan. 6, at 5 p.m. Complete eligibility guidelines, as well as selections from past “Faces of Austin” screenings, are here and the online application is here.
