Where can I watch The Fallout (2021)? How to catch SXSW winner

Where can you watch SXSW 2021 Narrative Feature winner, Megan Park’s feature debut The Fallout, starring Jenny Ortega and Maddie Ziegler? It has just premiered at SXSW Festival, but people already want to know where to watch it.

Why are people talking about The Fallout (2021)?

If you were unable to attend this year’s SXSW festival, you will have missed Megan Park’s feature debut, The Fallout.

The Fallout took the Narrative Feature Competition win this year. The jury described it as a “timely, riveting, and thought-provoking film”, and also “an intense, moving piece”.

Meanwhile Nick Allen, writing for Roger Ebert, praised Park’s “special and compelling filmmaking sensitivity”. 

However, he also identified what he thought was an occasional one-dimensionality of some of its scenes.

The Fallout cast – who is in it?

The Fallout stars Jenna Ortega as protagonist Vada Cavell. Ortega’s previous roles include Phoebe in The Babysitter: Killer Queen and Princess Isabel in the animated movie Elena of Avalor.

Alongside Jenny Ortega are Maddie Ziegler (Sia’s Music), Niles Fitch (This Is Us), Will Ropp and Lumi Pollack.

Where can I watch it?

The Fallout has only just had its premiere. 

But because it did so well, it will likely get snapped up by a broadcaster or streaming service in the coming weeks.

Universal Pictures Content Group is currently listed as the film’s non-US distributor. 

However, The Fallout doesn’t appear to have a domestic (US) distributor yet.

Will it appear on Netflix? Or HBO? Audiences will have to wait to find out.

Director Megan Park’s Instagram might be the best place to get up to date information on its distribution schedule.
