We are now accepting submissions for SXSW Film 2015!

We’re well known as a place for discovering new talent, and unearthing the voices that help define the future of cinema. We couldn’t do that without YOU. We’re looking for innovative and entertaining narrative and documentary features, short films, music videos, title sequences, and Texas high school films. Our first deadline is Thursday, October 2 – the earlier you submit your film to us, the more you’ll save. Check out this page for the complete timeline and fee structure.

I’m ready to submit my film!

Great! The process is simple, but we strongly recommend you read our Submissions FAQ very carefully. When you’re ready, submit your film via this page for consideration by SXSW Film. Read each stage of the process carefully – there are lots to take in, but it’s all essential to the process.

But my film won’t be ready for SXSW 2015!

No need to rush! Attending SXSW as a registrant before you screen a film here is just as valuable an experience – if not more so. You’ll gain valuable knowledge from seeing the selected work, and from taking advantage of the riches found in the extensive conference panels, workshops and sessions. SXSW Film is also an amazing place to meet essential industry, filmmakers, future collaborators and our justifiably renowned audiences.

Find out how to attend here, and remember – the earlier you register, the more money you save, and the more hotel options are available.
