Eye For Film >> Festivals >> A-Z >> South by Southwest >> 2021
SXSW's film arm is back in 2021 with a strong line-up of films screening online so that distributors can explore some of the best new industry offerings without having to put themselves at risk. Where last year's format change was rushed, this year everything about the festival has been carefully planned, which should result in a more rewarding experience for all concerned. We're still adding titles here at present so please bear with us.
The festival runs from 16 to 20 March.
