Yes! We encourage you to submit to all the festivals you think are the right fit for your project. Be sure to pay close attention to our submission deadlines.
You may still be waiting to learn of your project’s invitation status from other festivals (such as Sundance or Berlin) but if SXSW is a priority, you should submit to SXSW on time, before our final deadline of Tuesday, October 3, 2023.
If your submission is accepted by SXSW, you will have the option of accepting or declining your invitation. Keep in mind that while World, International, North American and U.S. premieres are preferable, we do show projects that have screened at other festivals.
