Faces of Austin 2014 Film Competition

The City of Austin invites Austin-area filmmakers to submit their work to Faces of Austin 2014. The Faces of Austin program showcases short films by local filmmakers, reflecting the diverse faces, voices, and experiences of our city. Submitted films must be under 10 minutes in length and must be filmed in Austin or highlight an Austin topic or organization. Both fiction and nonfiction works are acceptable.

The films selected for Faces of Austin will have a premiere screening during the SXSW Film Conference Community Screenings in March 2014. The films will be shown at Austin City Hall, on Channel 6, on the City website, and at special screenings throughout the year. One film will also receive a “Judge’s Choice” designation from special guest judge Richard Linklater.

The deadline for film submission is January 21, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.
