The big winners at the South by Southwest Film Festival were Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture, which won the narrative jury prize, and Jeff Malmberg’s Marwencol, which won the documentary jury prize, according to indieWIRE.
“… This is amazing to win just one week after Kathryn Bigelow winning the Oscar,” Dunham said while accepting the award.
Tiny Furniture, according to indieWIRE, is about a 22-year-old girl who comes home from college with a film degree and little direction. Marwencol follows a man seeking recovery after a fight in his backyard, which doubles as a fabricated World War II era town.
