Big in Texas, Bigger in L.A.

The Texas Filmmakers' Showcase lineup was announced not too long ago, and five Austin films made the cut. And by cut, I mean these five shorts were selected by the Houston Film Commission to be shown (along with three others) at the Showcase's annual special screening in L.A., in which studio execs, agents, and producers are invited to the Directors Guild of America theatre to sample the talents of Texas.
Homegrown films include Toddy Burton's "The Aviatrix," Julio & Marla Quintana's "Death Of An Ally," SunHee Cho's "jean=truth," Anne S. Lewis' "Separate Vacations," and Keith Wilson's "When The Light's Red" (a funny, neurotic short we enjoyed the hell out of at UT's annual Hollywood Showcase in 2007).
(Did we mention that two Showcasers are part of the Chron family? Both Burton and Lewis are frequent Chronicle contributors. Congrats, ladies.)
An Austin screening of the Showcase is in the works. When we know, you'll know.
