SXSW Film Festival Wristbands go on SALE today, February 13th, at Waterloo Records and Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, Slaughter Lane and Village locations. At $80 (tax included) each, they provide entry into screenings following Badge Holders based on capacity, but do not provide access to the SXSW Film Conference or Official Film Parties.
The second option for those who don’t have a badge is the Single Tickets, $10 each, which will be sold for every film this year (subject to capacity), are also a great resource allowing Austin locals to catch films without committing to a badge or wristband. The larger venues are the ones most likely to have seats available for single ticket sales, including the Paramount Theatre, Topfer Theatre at ZACH and the Vimeo Theater at the Austin Convention Center. Other good bets include the SXSatellite Venues: Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane and Village locations. The Rollins Theater at the Long Center is also a good one to try. You can also check the line status for a film on the Venue Status Boards in the SX Go! app or at vsb.sxsw.com.
If you’d like to purchase the tickets in advance, these are available in limited quantities for a selection of Paramount & Stateside screenings. You can purchase them through austintheatre.org.
