If my film has had a screening in Austin, is it eligible for SXSW?

If your film has screened in a theatrical setting to a general public audience in Austin, including other film festivals (i.e Austin Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, etc), it is not eligible.

The only exceptions are shorts that have played solely in conjunction with the University of Texas at Austin. However, private cast and crew screenings are fine.
