Can I request an extension to submit my project after the official deadline?

The 2021 SXSW Official Extension Request Form allows you to request an extension to submit a project to the 2021 SXSW Film Festival after our final deadline - Wednesday, October 28, 2020. This is an extension to submit an application for SXSW Online, our digital experience. If we are permitted by the relevant health authorities to host a physical event, we will curate that program separately.

We are in the thick of the screening and programming process, so be aware that the longer you wait to submit your film the fewer available spots in our program. Please keep this in mind as you select your "Requested Extension Date."

Completing this form DOES NOT guarantee you to an extension to submit your project. You should expect to receive follow up correspondence from SXSW within a week of submitting your request. At that point, we will let you know if your request has been approved or denied and send you the information on how to submit.

You should only be requesting an extension if you would like to submit after Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
