SXSW SETS NEW FILM SUBMISSION DEADLINES FOR 2012

Filmmakers Take Note! SXSW Film Festival has changed our submission deadlines. Due to the increase in submissions and the extremely tight turnaround, we’ve moved up our Late (and final) submission deadline to Tuesday, November 15, 2011.

This will allow us to continue to give every submission the careful consideration it deserves.

Don’t forget - filmmakers can submit their films earlier and save! Submission fees are at their lowest if you get your film in by the Early deadline of Tuesday, October 4, and are still discounted if you submit by the next deadline of Tuesday, November 1, 2011.

ALSO NEW: Please keep in mind, these deadlines are now on a RECEIVED BY basis, (NOT based on a postmark date). In other words, all 2012 film submissions must arrive at the SXSW offices in Austin no later than November 15, 2011.

SXSW Film accepts submissions in the following categories: Narrative Feature, Documentary Feature, Narrative Short, Documentary Short, Animated Short, Texas High School Short, Music Video, and Opening Title Sequence.

SXSW is proud to be an official qualifying festival for the Academy Awards Short Film competition. The Best Narrative Short and Best Animated Short winners become eligible for the Academy Awards.

We're excited to see what filmmakers have to show us for SXSW Film 2012, so stay tuned to the sxsw.com/film for more info on our Call For Entries which begin in early August 2011.
