You can still have fun and party at SXSW 2021… it’ll just be over Zoom this year.
Film festivals are great places to meet people and network, but the COVID situation has made many of them cancel or have to drastically change. This year, SXSW is determined to still make an impact. That’s why it’s moved its festival to the internet.
SXSW Online is a digital experience that brings you the benefits of sessions, film festival screenings, music showcases, networking, and exhibitions. The dates for SXSW EDU Online are March 9 March 11, 2021 and SXSW Online will take place March 16 – March 20, 2021.
SXSW CEO and co-founder Roland Swenson said, “The challenge of building a new future is one that we’re excited to tackle. This has been such a year of change and we, like the entire world, are reshaping our perspective on how we connect. We’re pleased to introduce SXSW Online as part of our program for 2021, and regardless of platform, we will continue to bring together the brightest minds from creative industries worldwide.”
So how does it work?
