$77,000 to 27 projects

The Austin Film Society's Texas Filmmakers' Production Fund has announced its 2005 awards to 27 "emerging film and video artists in the state of Texas ... whose work shows promise, skill, and creativity." Panelists Dominic Angerame, Jocelyn Glatzer, and Rose Troche decided on the recipients last week, and grants – which total $77,000 – will be awarded in September, at which point TFPF will have awarded $550,000 to more than 200 people since 1996.
