On Friday, just as the festival is kicking off filmmakers can come in and pitch their films straight to the SXSW audience. Emailing us, at filmpanels@sxsw.com prior to the event guarantees a spot for your pitch, or you can show up the day of and get in line to pitch your film.

This is a golden opportunity for filmmakers and attendees alike. Filmmakers get the chance to spread the word about their film and convince the audience why their film is worth seeing amongst the 100+ other films at SXSW. Members of the audience can watch filmmakers pitch their films in person AND figure out what they want to see opening weekend.

This promises to be insightful, fun and free-wheeling with Owen Egerton emceeing and a host of great filmmakers telling you why their film is the must see film of SXSW.

Also, don’t forget about the Trailer Park, which is also taking place on the Getty Day Stage on Sunday, March 9 at 3:30pm and Monday, March 10 at 5pm.

Submit your trailers to be screened and reviewed at the Trailer Park by e-mailing trailerparksxsw@gmail.com.
