SXSW 2021 Film Awards: Title Design Finalists

The SXSW Title Design Competition, normally showcased in front of a large audience and featuring an in-person judging process in Austin, Texas, has been shifted to an all-digital experience for 2021. We’ve compiled all of the finalist title sequences here.

Last year on March 6, the 2020 edition of the SXSW Conference & Festivals was called off due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. For 2021, the 28th annual SXSW Film Festival has moved entirely online, taking place from March 16 to 20. Normally the annual screening of finalists for the Excellence in Title Design Awards, part of the SXSW Film Festival, is presented in Austin, Texas, in front of a large enthusiastic audience and succeeded by a brief judging process. With only 15 finalists, the number of sequences up for an award this year appears to be the lowest it’s ever been – half of last year’s total of 30 — and many of the more established title design studios are noticeably absent so it’s good odds for an unusual year.
