Amazon to Stream 39 SXSW Films From Canceled Festival

Amazon Prime Video has unveiled a lineup of 39 films, including narrative and documentary features, short films and episodic titles, that were meant to screen at the canceled SXSW Film Festival.

Filmmakers submitted to SXSW were invited to opt in to take part in the online film festival that will play on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. starting on April 27 and running through May 6. The films are available for free to U.S. audiences with only a free Amazon account.

The lineup includes some of the award winners that the SXSW juries announced last month despite the festival being canceled. Among them are the documentary short “No Crying at the Dinner Table,” which won the jury’s top prize, and the narrative short “Dirty,” which won a special jury recognition for acting.
