Mar 10 - Mar 19, 2023
Yee-haw! That’s a wrap on the 2022 SXSW Conference & Festivals!
After three years apart, this event has felt more historic than ever for us. March 11-20 served as an epic reunion of creatives from around the world, eager to share new ideas and get moving on solutions. We want to give a Texas-sized THANK YOU to all of the registrants, staff, crew, volunteers, artists, speakers, filmmakers, innovators, disrupters, Nick Cages, and our wonderful Austin community.
SXSW 2022 was both in-person and online, simultaneously, for the first time. It was a ten-day whirlwind of enlightening and inspiring sessions, film screenings, music showcases, exhibitions, tacos, networking, art installations, competitions, awards, and beyond.
At the Film Awards, we celebrated the collaboration between filmmakers and designers honoring the winners of the 2022 Jury and Special Awards including Narrative Feature Competition winner I Love My Dad; Documentary Feature Competition winner Master of Light; and more from Shorts, Design, XR Experience, and Special Awards categories. Stay tuned for the announcement of the Audience Award Winners coming soon.
Hundreds of exhibitors from around the world gave us a glimpse of the future with cutting-edge technology from VR demonstrations to robotics at the SXSW Creative Industries Exhibition in-person and online as well as numerous other world-class Exhibitions. We celebrated the winners of the many prestigious Awards categories including SXSW Pitch, Innovation Awards, and the Community Service Awards.
SXSW 2022 was filled with ample opportunity to explore, learn, discover, cut a rug, and leave inspired. We hope you enjoyed each exciting moment IRL, URL, and in XR. Now begins the preparation for 2023 (after a marathon of sleep and some tacos to refuel), we look forward to seeing you again March 10-19, 2023 in Austin, TX and online for the 2023 SXSW Conference & Festivals.
