For the next week and a half, the SXSW festival is taking over Austin, Texas, to celebrate music, film and all things interactive. If you think a few of the shorts in the SXSW line-up sound familiar, that's because they do - YouTube features href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fY4Epc2XSGc">My First Crush,
Knock Knock, "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQPDU9uqxTA">The Golden Egg and Spider all made it to the big screen, so congratulate your fellow YouTube filmmakers!
