Shotgun Stories has won several awards at various film festivals including Official Selection at the Berlin Film Festival, Grand Jury Prize (New American Cinema) at the Seattle International Film Festival, Official Selection at Tribeca Film Festival, and Narrative Feature Jury Prize at the Austin Film Festival, among others. It is an astounding film. It is heavy. It is morose. It's a work of art. And it was written and directed by a friend and fellow Austinite, Jeff Nichols. Watch out for this guy, and keep an eye out for this film. If you have already seen it, please head on over to Austin360.com and vote here. There are several different catagories to vote for, but Shotgun Stories is up for Best Film in 2007 With Austin Ties, and it's about half way down the page.
