How do I submit a film to SXSW Film?

SXSW only accepts film submissions via We do not use any other submission platform. You can start the film submission process here.

We require all films to be submitted by URL link. Filmmakers must submit a working link to an online version of your film on an external site (i.e. your own website, Vimeo, etc.) and any necessary passwords to view the link at the time of submission. This link must be active and accessible through March 2019. Please DO NOT send us a DVD copy as DVDs will not be considered. For more information visit our Film Submissions page!

 If any changes are made to the access of your films link, you MUST contact SXSW Film at with the updated information or your film may be disqualified from consideration.
