Having your Documentary, Narrative or Animated short film selected for SXSW is prestigious in its own right. In addition, we're pleased to count ourselves among the festivals eligible for both BAFTA and Oscars Shorts qualification.
What does this mean for you, short filmmaker?
- WINNERS of our Best Animated, Best Narrative and Best Documentary Short Film categories become eligible for Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awards (Oscars).
- ANY Narrative or Documentary short film that screens at SXSW is eligible for BAFTA nomination, provided it is a UK-based production.
In other words, a SXSW screening is a step on the road to a coveted prize and a place in cinematic history.
