Two winners of the fourth-annual PBS Online Film Festival have been announced!
The film that took the “People’s Choice” top honor was “Sinner Victim Saint,” a short narrative presented by CET & Think TV, centering on a newlywed husband who has recently lost his wife in a car accident and the dark turn of events that teaches him the power of sacrifice.
The creator, Moses Flores, is a local Austin cinematographer, director and editor.
The animated film “11 Paper Place,” presented by member station Vermont PBS, a love story about two sheets of paper who meet in a recycle bin, was the most-viewed of the 25 short films screened online.
During the six weeks the films were available for screening, entries were streamed more than 400,000 times, up from 312,000 streams in 2014 over a seven-week period.
