SXSW EDU celebrates the power of film to explore critical topics and issues impacting education with screenings and Q&A discussions with filmmakers and participants.

The SXSW EDU Film program highlights poignant narratives and documentaries focusing on all aspects of education. With films that tackle the social impacts on domestic and international education, peer into classrooms, explore the journey to becoming an educator, and more, the Film program is an integral and compelling component of SXSW EDU. Many screenings conclude with a Q&A featuring the filmmakers, film subjects, or experts on the topic at hand, providing attendees an opportunity to connect with the film more deeply.

Stay tuned for more information later this summer about the 2025 Film Program and how to apply. Sign up for SXSW EDU Event Updates to be the first to know.

Please note that the SXSW EDU Film program is a programming component of SXSW EDU and not a film festival. It is distinct from and should not be confused with the SXSW Film & TV Festival.
