Will I hear from SXSW or receive a confirmation after I submit my application?

Yes. You should expect 2 emails from SXSW after you successfully submit your application:

  • Film Festival Submission Confirmation. When you have successfully submitted your SXSW online film festival application, we will send a confirmation containing your SXSW Tracking Number.
  • Film Festival Decision. It takes months for us to complete the selection process. SXSW Film will send rolling notifications beginning in September, while continuing to program and make decisions deep into late January. All applicants will be informed of their status no later than Friday, February 9, 2018.

To keep important SXSW emails from landing in your spam folder it's a good idea to add the following address to your contact list: filmfest@sxsw.com.
