The SXSW Film and TV Festival is one of the largest of its kind in the world. In a typical year, thousands of fans arrive in downtown Austin, TX to partake in a couple of weeks of great music, technology, and film. For this special episode of The Hollywood Outsider, we take you along for our annual deep dive into SXSW 2023, the heart of the SXSW Film and TV Festival portion, and even further into the films themselves.

Over the course of several days, the 2023 SXSW Film and TV Festival screened numerous features, TV premieres, many from first-time filmmakers (consisting of World Premieres, North American Premieres, and US Premieres), shorts, virtual reality exhibits, title design, and other works. These films were selected from thousands of overall submissions, and – while we can’t see them all – we have a nice sample to share with you of what came out of this stellar lineup of independent and popular films and television series. Over 25 films are on our docket this year, and we review them all (including Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, John Wick: Chapter 4, and Evil Dead Rise), as well as snippets from panels and a whole lot more!

So sit back and relax. You’re about to experience the SXSW Film and TV Festival from the comfort of your own home.
