Here at South by Southwest, we’re happy to announce the batch of five finalists for the first-ever SXSWeb Media Festival. After months of work, SXSW staffers Cathy Ross, Jarod Neece, and Shawn O’Keefe have compiled and constructed this year’s online festival. I may be biased, but I think they did a very good job.
So, basically, what’s next is a round of online voting (coming soon). For now, everyone can download and watch the finalists. Just click here. There’s one missing due to technical difficulties with the “print” we received (note to filmmakers: triple-check the copies you send festivals before you send them).
The winner will be automatically accepted to the 2005 SXSW Film Festival.
