Call for entry: SXSW Film Festival 2013, Texas

By NewsDesk • Published on August 4, 2012

Filmmakers are invited to submit their new features, short films, music videos and title sequences to the SXSW Film Festival to be held in Austin, Texas from March 8 – 16, 2013.

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 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. SXSW is also a BAFTA-recognized festival for 2012/2013 for the purposes of eligibility for the Short Film category at the Orange British Academy Film Awards.

Last year the Festival featured 132 features and 12 shorts programs, with 74 world premiere features, including The Cabin in the Woods, 21 Jump Street, HBO’s Girls, Gimme the Loot, Beware of Mr. Baker, Fat Kid Rules the World, Somebody Up There Likes Me, Citadel, Waiting for Lightning, and Sun Don’t Shine among others.

Submissions may only be entered via the official SXSW website, at http://sxsw.com/film.

The Last Minute (and final) submission deadline to submit a film is Thursday, November 15, 2012.  Submission fees are at their lowest if filmmakers submit their films by the early deadline of Thursday, October 4, and are still discounted by the next deadline of Thursday, November 1, 2012. The deadlines are on a ‘Received By’ basis, and not based on postmark date.
