SXSW Pilot Showcase Comes to Vimeo

SXSW comes to another streaming platform.

SXSW is one of the most popular festivals of the year. Due to covid-19, this year’s event was cancelled for the first time in its history. This has left filmmakers and creators scrambling to find a home for their work. There has been some good news from Amazon and now  Vimeo is hosting the SXSW Pilot Showcase starting April 14. The pilots, shorts, and documentaries will be available for at least one month.

“We saw a need to pivot on the cancellation of SXSW and open up conversations with online platforms about how to now connect with an audience — at a time when connection feels more important than ever,” said Coral Amiga and Nicole Hartley, co-creators of the pilot Bored. They reached out to Vimeo and set out to create a special showcase of select SXSW 2020 Film Festival episodic pilots available to the public, which perhaps in normal circumstances wouldn’t be.

“Vimeo is proud to offer creators of all kinds a platform to share their stories, now and always,” said Courtney Horwitz, Head of Brand and Content at Vimeo.

“This sampling of our Episodic Pilot program showcases diverse perspectives using comedy and heart to tackle the complexities and joys of human connection,” said Claudette Godfrey, Senior Film Programmer .  “In this time of uncertainty, we love seeing these filmmakers forging a path for their work to connect to the audience who we know could use some laughs.”
