Film Submission Tips: Extensions

Update: The Film Extensions period has passed. Stay tuned to SXSW News for more information on SXSW 2019 applications coming the Summer of 2018.

Even though the Late Deadline has passed for the 2018 SXSW Film Festival, it is still possible to enter your film for consideration.

  • SXSW Film does grant submission extensions on a case-by-case basis.

  • If you are in need of an extension please fill out this form. Make sure all the information is accurate and the extension request date is within a reasonable time frame.

  • Keep in mind that we do accept work-in-progress cuts of films, so if you are awaiting color correction and/or audio mix, but your picture is locked, we encourage you to request an extension.

  • If you have any questions regarding extensions or any other submissions questions please email, and we would be happy to assist you.
