The roster of award winning "DSXSO" short films includes two Cannes short film selections by Angela Torres (Mexico) and Mario Troncoso (Spain), and impressive works by two of the most important Latino filmmakers to have come out of Texas in recent years, Miguel Alvarez and Maru Buendia-Sientes, and up-and-coming filmmaker Sharon Artega from Corpus Christi.
Two medium format shorts by South American filmmakers Gabriela Yepez (Peru), and Venezuelan-American Sergio Carvajal will also be featured.
