April 22, 2020

Earlier this month, SXSW and Amazon announced the 2020 SXSW Film Festival will go on virtually amid the cancellation of the long-running festival and conference. Prime Video will present a collection from the 2020 selections including 39 films consisting of narrative features, documentaries, short films and episodic titles. The online event taking place from April 27 to May 6 will be available for free in front of the Prime Video paywall with a simple Amazon membership. 

“SXSW has always championed creators forging their own paths to success, often with just the right mix of passion, vision, and radical experimentation to make their dreams happen,” said Janet Pierson, Director of Film at SXSW in a statement. “There is no one-size-fits-all, especially in these uncertain times, and we knew this opportunity would be of interest to those filmmakers who wanted to be in front of a large audience now. We believe people will be captivated by this selection of intriguing work that would have been shown at our 2020 event.”

In addition to the free streaming selections from SXSW Film Festival, the event will also feature online panels and Q&As. Watch the Amazon Prime Video and SXSW Film Collection April 27 to May 6 and check out some of the featured films below.
