At the SXSW closing awards ceremony Tuesday night, Lena Dunham's offbeat autobiographical drama Tiny Furniture won the narrative feature jury prize. Shot in November and edited in December, the filmmakers finished the micro-budget drama last Monday, and flew into Austin with a tape in hand. Dunham also won the Emergent Narrative Woman Director Award.

The dramatic jury also awarded two special jury prizes: best ensemble, Myth of the American Sleepover, directed by
David Robert Mitchell and best individual performance: Brian Hasenfus in Phillip the Fossil, directed by Garth Donovan.

The feature doc jury winner was Jeff Malmberg's Marwencol, about Mark Hogancamp and his fantasy world. The runner-up was War Don Don, from
director Rebecca Richman Cohen.

The audience awards went to Will Canon's fraternity thriller Brotherhood and documentary filmmakers Jim Bigham & Mark Moormann's For Once in My Life, about the members of the Spirit of Goodwill Band.

Prizes for Shorts, Film Design, the SXSW Chicken & Egg and the SXSW Wholphin Award are on the jump and at indieWIRE.

Audience Awards for Spotlight Premieres, Emerging Visions, 24 Beats Per Second, Lone Star States, and Midnighters will be announced on Monday, March 22, 2010.

Jurors considered 134 feature-length films (selected from a record 1,572 feature submissions: 1,206 U.S. and 366 foreign films) and 130 shorts (selected from 2,312 submissions). In its inaugural year, the title design competition had 18 finalists (selected from 101 submissions).
