This season's M.A.F.I.A. ñ or Make a Film in a Weekend ñ focuses on Austin's Central Eastside. Filmmakers were asked to make and complete their films during the first weekend of March and use one of four Eastside locations chosen by the Co-op: Saltillo Plaza, the intersection of 12th & Chicon, the garden at Cafe Mundi, or the Oakwood Cemetery. All films run no longer than three minutes each and are edited in-camera. Many of the soundtracks are original compositions made collaboratively by filmmakers and musicians.
