Brie Larson in 'Short Term 12.'

The Grand Jury and Special Award winners of the 2013 SXSW Film Festival were revealed Tuesday in Austin. Destin Cretton's "Short Term 12," starring Brie Larson and John Gallagher Jr. as foster care workers dealing with their own troubled pasts, has taken the Narrative Feature prize, while Ben Nabors' "William and the Windmill," focusing on the author and subject of "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind," has been awarded the Documentary prize.

Carlos Puga's "Burma," led by strong Christopher Abbott and Gaby Hoffmann, has appropriately taken the Ensemble Cast prize, while the deserving Tishuan Scott of Chris Eska's gorgeously lensed African-American Civil War drama "The Retrieval" (watch an exclusive clip here) has won the Jury Acting prize.
