SXSW Audience Award Winners Include ‘Zero Charisma’ and ‘Cheap Thrills’

Magic Stone Productions

Even if you can’t attend a film festival, you should always pay attention to what wins the audience awards — those films are bound to show up further down the road and become some of your new favorite movies. The 2013 SXSW audience awards have been announced and they include a few films we’ve already told you about here on Screencrush!

The audience awards are exactly what they sound like: awards given to films that scored the highest on ballots given to the audiences themselves. The movies that win these awards tend to be true crowd-pleasers, films that have a strong chance of coming to a theater near you (or at least snagging a solid distribution deal).

Without further ado, here are the winners:

The highly acclaimed ‘Short Term 12‘ (read our review here) was the Narrative Feature Competition Audience Award winner. The Narrative Spotlight Audience Award went to the smart, funny ‘Zero Charisma‘ (our review can be found here). The Midnighters Audience Award was given to ‘Cheap Thrills,’ which was one of the first films to be bought at the festival.

The other audience award winners include ‘Maidentrip,’ ‘A Band Called Death,’ The Short Game,’ ‘An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story,’ ‘The Punk Syndrome’ and ‘The Crash Reel.’
