Film fans are now making their way from Austin and another year at the SXSW Film Festival, with bbq stains in unexpected places and flickering images still dancing in their head. And after the juries weighed in last week with the best of the fest, now regular audiences have noted on what was worth paying attention to this year in Texas.
The two big prizes for Narrative feature and Documentary feature went to Shawn Christensen‘s “Before I Disappear” and Diana Whitten‘s “Vessel.” Meanwhile, biopic “Cesar Chavez” took the Narrative Spotlight trophy, while HBO‘s upcoming comedy “Silicon Valley” won for Episodic television and the recently finished “True Detective” took Title Design here, just as it did with the jury folks.
Full list of winners below.
