The SXSW EDU Film Program highlights narratives and documentaries focusing on issues across the education landscape. With films tackling social issues in learning around the world, exploring classrooms, student advocacy, and more, the film program brings the power of cinema to the passionate SXSW EDU community. Apply to have your film screened at SXSW EDU 2024, March 4-7.

Why SXSW EDU Film?

Screening your film at SXSW EDU is a unique opportunity to share your work and have a meaningful dialogue with a diverse education community. In addition to film screenings, we host post-screening Q&A conversations as a powerful opportunity to engage with the community at the event, which is strongly encouraged if you are able to travel to Austin.

The SXSW EDU 2024 Film Program application is now closed.

Please note, while we focus on new films, World and U.S. Premiere opportunities are reserved for the SXSW Film & TV Festival.
