For those lucky enough to work in the business of cinema, the third week of March holds a special place on the calendar. It means film, music, friends, and food. It means, in other words, South by Southwest!
Each year since our founding, O-Scope attends, eager for the chance to watch countless films, eat countless tacos, and shake countless hands.
We were devastated to not have that chance this year…
Just Hold On – Dir. Sam Davis
SXSW has long been a champion of short films. Shorts are a true distillation of filmmaking. When a creator premieres their short film at SXSW, they don’t do so expecting to make a big flashy deal. They just want to be seen.
Oscilloscope Laboratories and Mailchimp are so proud to help realize the dreams of these short filmmakers, by providing a platform to share their vision with the world. To connect with and feel the camaraderie of the SXSW community. And to know that their hard work will not go unnoticed.
They will be seen.
Unveiled – Dir. Sofia Bajwa
Please enjoy the SXSW 2020 Official Short Film Selections, free of charge. And please share this platform with your friends! While nothing can recreate the experience of premiering a film at the South by Southwest Film Festival, we’d be remiss if we didn’t try to give these filmmakers the satisfaction of sharing their blood, sweat, and tears with you all.

This is a really great idea. This gives people access to short films, especially for free. This is much needed for self-isolation.
