Calling all Filmmakers!

The City of Austin wants to see what inspires you!

If you read this blog you know there’s just something about Austin that fuels creativity. From the music in the air, to the people on the street, to the landscape that surrounds us – inspiration is everywhere. Since 2005, Faces of Austin has showcased short films by local filmmakers, reflecting the diverse faces, voices, and experiences of our city. The City of Austin now invites all Austin-area filmmakers to submit their work to Faces of Austin 2013. The films selected for Faces of Austin 2013 will have a premiere screening during the SXSW Film Conference Community Screenings in March 2013. The films will be shown at Austin City Hall, on Channel 6, on the City website, and at special screenings throughout the year. And as an added bonus this year, local film luminary Elizabeth Avellán (Producer-Spy Kids, Sin City, Machete) will select one film as the Judge’s Choice!

Be sure to hurry and submit your work. Deadline is January 15th. That’s tomm, kids!

Submission is free.
