SXSW Announces Film Festival Winners

Women and Hollywood By Kerensa Cadenas | Women and Hollywood March 14, 2013 at 11:26AM

I've been here on the ground at SXSW for Women and Hollywood and have had the opportunity to see some incredible films, many of which I'm so pleased to say won awards. Destin Daniel Cretton's incredible Short Term 12, with a standout performance by Brie Larson (watch for our interview with her), won the Grand Jury Prize for Narrative Feature.
