For those submitting their features to SXSW, something to keep in mind is that, to be in the Narrative or Documentary Feature Jury Competition, a feature must be a World or U.S. Premiere at SXSW in March. Don’t worry: there are many other categories for features that have already played in the U.S. This is just for the Jury Competition programs. As for shorts, premiere status is much more open. A short can still be in our competition if it has already screened in the U.S.
And, again, the final deadline is December 5. Just a helpful reminder!
