SXSW has long been a champion of independent filmmakers, and premiering a short film at the festival is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for creators to share their vision with the world. When the City of Austin had to cancel this year’s festival, hundreds of filmmakers lost the opportunity for their work to be seen.
Together, Mailchimp and Oscilloscope Laboratories have created a digital home for this incredible slate of short films, so you can watch them from wherever you are. While we can’t replace the camaraderie of the festival, watching these films is a way to support the artists you love and connect to the world around you, during a time when we could all use a little more connection.
Out of the 64 (!!!) SXSW 2020 shorts available on Mailchimp’s official website, eight of them are MIDNIGHTERS, which are perfect fodder for our readers here at Nightmarish Conjurings. And there are a number of the shorts in other categories that will very likely scratch the genre lover’s itches for rad new genre content.
Please enjoy the SXSW 2020 Short Films Selections. This comprehensive collection features shorts from all of SXSW 2020’s film categories, including Animated, Documentary, Made in Texas, Midnight, Narrative, and Texas High School.
