siff.net/festival

This year’s Festival will showcase 92 features and 126 shorts from 69 countries, plus daily events, talks, Q&As, and more. The festival will take place virtually with films available on demand through the new streaming SIFF Channel AND there will be tons of opportunities to gather, participate, and celebrate. All you need is an internet connection and a screen (the bigger the better)—so put on something comfy, ready the couch, and pop the popcorn.

Even if we can’t be together in person, our affinity for film can still bring us together—so let’s fest!
