SXSW 2011 Open for Submissions2 Aug, 2010 By: Billy Gil
It seems like the South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival just passed us, but it’s already time for filmmakers to submit and register for the 2011 SXSW, taking place March 11-19, 2011, in Austin, Texas.
New features, short films and title will be accepted. Last year’s festival saw 267 features and shorts, including 64 world premiere features such as Kick-Ass, MacGruber, Tiny Furniture, Cold Weather, Marwencol, Monsters and Thunder Soul.
“Across the board, the films screened at SXSW 2010 were so exciting, innovative and entertaining that we can't wait to see what 2011 will bring,” said Janet Pierson, SXSW Film Conference and Festival producer. “Look for our complete lineup and conference schedule in early February 2011.”
Submissions can be entered at . The early submission period runs through Nov. 4, with feature submission fees at $40, shorts at $25 and title sequence design at $10. Submission fees go up after that, so sign up early, filmmakers.
