In its second year, the Austin Music Video Festival grew bigger and better, with “more attendance and excitement in the air,” co-founder Anthony Erickson said Monday afternoon. Erickson says the fest sold out their kick off event, a screening of Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” at Alamo Drafthouse, rocked their first Video Skate Party at the Millennium Entertainment Complex and packed their Videoactive lounge on Saturday.

Also on Saturday, the fest hosted the second annual Austin Music Video Awards.

Organizers widened the scope of the fest this year, opening submissions to artists from around the country and the world this year. Many of the awards went to non-Austinites. NYC artist Elliott Moss took the Video of the Year award for “Pattern Repeating.”

But several Austinites did take honors. Here are the Austin winners.
