Have you watched all of the short films that are finalists in this year's SXSWclick competition yet? If not, you're missing an excellent chance to watch a variety of good shorts from the comfort of your home computer, and of course it doesn't cost you a dime. There are 15 finalists, three each in the five categories: Old-School Shorts (traditional narratives), Really Real Shorts (documentaries), Animate It (should be self-explanatory), Sound Checks (music videos) and What the F*#!? (experimental). The shorts are all under 10 minutes each, and let's face it -- you can't catch films with titles like Corporate Whore, Sloths on a Tank and Math Bus at the multiplex.

After you've watched the films, you can vote for the best ones to win the Popularity Contest Award. But do it right now -- the deadline is this Friday, July 27. A jury will also pick awards for the top film in each category. The 14-person jury includes a number of familiar faces in the filmmaking community, from author Violet Blue to writer-comedian Bob Odenkirk (of Mr. Show) to actor Kal Penn (from Harold and Kumar). The awards will be announced on August 1, and the award-winning shorts will screen at SXSW 2008 next March. If this year's SXSWclick finalists aren't enough for you shorts-watching maniacs, last year's winners and finalists are also available to view online.
