For over 30 years SXSW has been a destination for creatives, a platform for industry leaders, and for some, the Film & TV Festival is a launchpad towards an Academy Award nomination. The event continues to highlight unseen stories, celebrate those who've achieved excellence in their craft, and seemingly changed careers overnight.
The Oscars annual awards ceremony often has a large ripple effect on factors like box office sales, distribution, casting and more making waves in the future of film and TV. So while we're all excited to see Brendan Fraser back on the red carpet where he belongs, and some stunning evening gowns, the real industry excitment is percolating just under the surface. See the complete list of SXSW Alumni nominated for a 2023 Academy Award below!
SXSW is an official qualifying festival for the Academy Awards® Short Film competition, as well as BAFTA nominations, and Independent Spirit Awards. 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 British Short Film or Animation that screens at SXSW is eligible for BAFTA nomination. See more information on Awards eligibility.
