Date: March 12 - 21, 2010
Call for Entry Deadline: December 11, 2009
Films screen in the following categories: Narrative Feature, Documentary Feature, Narrative Short, Documentary Short, Animated Short, Experimental Short, and Music Video.
You decide which category is appropriate for your film, keeping in mind: to qualify as a short, your film must be 40 minutes or less; experimental shorts are those without a narrative thread.
SXSW Film does not accept trailers or works-in-progress. We do accept rough cuts (picture lock w/ temp sound, color, etc), but we cannot guarantee we'll have time to view a finished product. Applicants will be informed of the status of their project no later than February 16, 2010.
NOTE: We cannot consider film submissions sent to us via URL (e.g. YouTube, MySpace, Google Video, or Quicktime uploads). All submissions must be sent on DVD.
Fee (USD): 25 - 100
Awards: The annual SXSW Film Awards Ceremony took place on Tuesday, March 17 at the Austin Convention Center Theater.
