There's nothing like a great, locally made short film -- unless maybe it's six great, locally made short films, which is the downright amazing case with Six in Austin, a collaborative effort by a sextet of Austin filmmakers (shown, from right: producer Anne del Castillo, directors Zack and Wyatt Phillips) and a wealth of local crews and behind-the-scenes talent. (For more on the project, see "Six (Not So) Easy Pieces," November 11, austinchronicle.com/issues/dispatch/2001-11-02/screens_feature.html.) Sunday's cast-and-crew screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown was a veritable roll call of Austin's finest film talent and yet more proof that, yes, we do live in one of the most amazing places on this increasingly cinematic planet.
