Here at SXSW Film we regularly get asked if we offer extensions beyond our Late Deadline, as it is a Received By Deadline. Only in rare and exceptional cases will we grant extensions.
If you feel you absolutely need an extension, you must contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to our Final Deadline on November 14th. We will allow very few extensions, on a case-by-case basis, and in very special circumstances, so be sure to include as much information about the film and director as possible in your email request.
And remember, this Thursday, November 14th is our Late Deadline! This is a RECEIVED BY DEADLINE so if you are a feature filmmaker, it is important for you to expedite your two NTSC DVDs to our offices by this date!
