You’ve put blood, sweat, tears and money into your film, and it’s time to meet your audience. SXSW Film is the perfect place to find it!

It’s a great opportunity to discover new talent, fresh visions and future-thinking creativity and we want you to be a part of that! We’re on a mission to find innovative and entertaining narrative and documentary features, short films, music videos, title sequences, and Texas High School short films.

<strong>Ready to submit?</strong>

Start by reading our detailed and comprehensive <a href="">Submissions FAQ</a>. Once you have all your materials together, you're ready to <a href="">start the submission process</a>. Read all the info very carefully, and make sure you have everything you need to send us your film.

Please note some of the changes to our <a href="">timeline and fee structure</a>.

<strong>Anything else you should know?</strong>

For the first time ever, we will NOT be accepting submissions on physical media. That means no DVD, no Blu-ray, no VHS, Beta, Laserdisc or anything else you can think of. All we need from you is a link. Again, check out the <a href="">Submissions FAQ</a> for the tech requirements and all other questions.

Don’t forget, even if you don’t submit a film to SXSW, it's still a fantastic way to acquire valuable experience and knowledge, meet collaborators, learn from experts and get inspired! <a href="">Registrations for SXSW 2016</a> will open on <strong>August 3, 2015</strong>, and the earlier you register, the more money you save and the more hotel options you have.
