The cancellation of South by Southwest on March 6 was among the first signs that life as we know it was about to drastically change.
The annual festival celebrating music and movies is carrying on — at least in spirit — with 39 films debuting Monday on Amazon Prime as part of the SXSW 2020 Film Festival Collection.
Filmmakers whose works were supposed to debut in March during the festival in Austin, Texas, were invited to participate and have their works shown to the masses Monday-May 6. The films will be free to screen in the U.S., even for customers without Amazon Prime accounts.
