Watch ‘Faces of Austin’ short films at home

Thursday, April 30, 2020 by Tai Moses

One of the most enduring and popular parts of the annual South by Southwest festival is the Faces of Austin short film series, a showcase of original work by Austin-area filmmakers. Every March, the filmmakers – and the community – get to see the selected shorts premiered at SXSW. This year … not. But thanks to the city’s Cultural Arts Division, ATXN and the Austin Film Society, you can enjoy Faces of Austin in the comfort and safety of your own living room via YouTube. We adored “Nana” and “Puppy Love,” but watch them all and make up your own mind. Each of the 12 shorts is 10 minutes or less. This year’s guest judge for Faces of Austin was writer/director Andrew Bujalski.
