SXSW 2013 has only recently passed the halfway mark but already the Feature Film Jury Awards have been announced, with "Short Term 12," "Burma," "The Retrieval" and "William and the Windmill" receiving top honors.
The big winner of this year's festival is "Short Term 12," the Grand Jury Winner in the Narrative Feature Competition. The character drama, written and directed by Destin Cretton, follows a young woman named Grace (Brie Larson) as she navigates the troubled waters of a foster care home as one of its supervising staff members. The film has proved to be a festival favorite since its first screening on Sunday.
"This is so crazy emotional," Cretton said as he took the stage during the awards ceremony on Tuesday evening, saluting his fellow SXSW filmmakers with "to call this a competition is silly and totally wrong."
