03 Avril, 2020, 02:07 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Ever since SXSW was cancelled by the City of Austin, we've been focused on how we could help the incredible films and filmmakers in the SXSW 2020 Film Festival lineup.

Now, some of these movies can reach audiences online as part of "Prime Video presents the SXSW 2020 Film Festival Collection".

"Prime Video presents the SXSW 2020 Film Festival Collection" offers filmmakers in the 2020 SXSW Film Festival lineup an invitation to opt in to take part in this online film festival, which will play exclusively on Prime Video in the USA for 10-days. The one-time event is scheduled to stream for free to anyone who has an Amazon account, regardless of their Prime membership status. "We were delighted when Amazon Prime Video offered to host an online film festival, and jumped at the opportunity to connect their audiences to our filmmakers".

The launch date is yet to be announced, but SXSW and Prime Video are aiming to hold the 10-day online event in late April. The specific selection of movies hasn't been unveiled yet - The Associated Press notes it's probably safe to say Netflix won't be opting in - but filmmakers who participate will receive a screening fee. The "online film festival" will showcase the films for free for all viewers, even those without a Prime subscription.

Filmmakers whose work had been slated for the 2020 film festival will be invited to participate, and can opt in starting today.

South by Southwest organizers have worked frantically to salvage what they could of the Austin, Texas, festival and bring attention to the many films that had been planning to premiere there.
