This brings up the question, when should you overnight your film?

It is only necessary to overnight your feature film to us to meet the proper deadlines.

The SXSW Film Festival does operate under RECEIVED BY DEADLINES, meaning we want your feature film in our offices on or before the date of the deadline you applied under. Unless you are running up to the deadline to finish your submission cut, it is not necessary to overnight your feature film to us. So save yourself some money and send your film through snail mail today!

Remember, if you are submitting a Narrative Short, Documentary Short, Animated Short, Music Video, or Title Sequence, your submission must be submitted via URL link.
