This year all Narrative Shorts, Documentary Shorts, Animated Shorts, Music Videos and Texas High School Short Film submissions must be submitted by URL link. So, all you need to do is post your film on an external site (i.e. Vimeo, YouTube HD, your own website, etc.) and submit your Short Film, Texas High School Film or Music Video to SXSW today!

It is very important to keep SXSW Film updated on any and all changes made to your link (password changes, URL changes, etc.) or your film may become disqualified!!! So if you make any changes at all to your link, be sure to email us at
