Have you ever wanted to attend a film festival? Good news, thanks to Amazon, the filmmakers who participated, the SXSW will be be presented at Amazon over a 10 day period from April 27 – May 6, 2020. I’ve wanted to attend a film festival and while this might not be the full in person effect, it’s going to give me the first opportunity to check out films being screened. As can readers.

There will be panels and Q&As through the Alma Har’el-founded Free The Work. “Amazon’s SXSW 2020 Film Festival Collection is giving a platform to work that would have been celebrated at this year’s festival,” said Har’el, who helmed Honey Boy. “Free The Work’s mission is to find new pathways to the discovery of underrepresented creators and we’re excited to help celebrate, spotlight, and provide a platform for the voices of these talented filmmakers.”SXSW 2020 Festival Slate To Launch On Prime Video April 27 – Deadline
