Ten different countries are represented on the list and ScreenAnarchy readers will certainly recognize most of the names there. Representatives of the projects will make pitches at the market in Austin, and a jury made of Fantastic Fest founder Tim League, director Robert Rodriguez and other industry professionals will select and award the top three.

Here's the full press release:
