Canceled South By Southwest’s Movies Are Now On Amazon


One of the most beloved film festivals in the world, South By Southwest (also known as SXSW), was canceled this year due to the pandemic. But its lineup still found a way to reach the audience.

All the movies that were initially set to premiere at the Austin-based fest are now available on Amazon Prime. The streaming service gives free limited access to 39 SXSW-selected movies, from April 27th to May 6th. The offer is available in the U.S.-only.

Movie lovers can now enjoy narrative features, shorts, and documentaries from both seasoned professionals and promising newcomers of the independent movie world. 

The list of movies includes ‘My Darling Vivian”, a documentary about Vivian Liberto, the first wife of Johnny Cash, an international social dramedy ‘Cat in The Wall’, and ‘Tales From the Loop”, a surrealist story that is based on Simon Stålenhag’s art and stars Rebecca Hall.

The filmmakers who agreed to submit their movies for the Amazon streaming will receive a screening fee.
