The South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival already announced jury award-winners for narrative ("Gimme the Loot") and documentary ("Beware of Mr. Baker") and audience award-winners for narrative ("Eden") and documentary ("Bay of All Saints").

Saturday, SXSW revealed more Audience Award-winners from the Narrative Spotlight, Documentary Spotlight, Emerging Visions, Midnighters, 24 Beats Per Second, SXGlobal and Festival Favorites categories. (The Headliner Audience Award will follow on Monday, March 19, 2012.)

Clearly, one of the big winners at SXSW was Welsh actor Aneurin Barnard, who not only earned kudos in Welsh acquisition title "Hunky Dory," a sweet 70s high school pop musical starring Minnie Driver which distributors such as Sony Pictures Classics were checking out, but Midnighters audience award-winner "Citadel." Barnard, with hard-driving UTA agent Veronica Gabriel behind him, has plenty coming up on his dance card.
