SXSW: Five 2013 Borscht Film Festival Shorts Selected to Screen in Austin
Bernardo Britto's Places Where We Lived
More good news for the filmmakers of Borscht Corp: Four selections from this year's Borscht Film Festival have been selected to screen at SXSW in Austin next month.
There are just 34 films in the festival's Narrative Shorts category, so having five of them come from Borscht helps to validate Miami as a regional indie film hub. Check out the selections after the jump.
Lucas Leyva and Jillian Mayer's#PostModem
, the forehead-carving, MegaMegaUploading, naked waterjet-riding short film that's coming off a successful run at Sundance last month, will play for Texas audiences during the festival.
Amy Seimetz's When We Lived In Miami
Two other emotional selections -- Amy Siemetz's When We Lived in Miami, tracking turbulent weather and an even more turbulent relationship, and Bernardo Britto's Places Where We Lived, about the loss of a childhood home -- will surely add some weepy levity to the Austin madness. Celia Rowlson-Hall's Si Nos Dejan, a trip through love story tropes, is also on the SXSW agenda.
And then there's Andrew Zuchero's awesomely funThe Apocalypse
