Salem Film Fest

Salem Film Fest

The 13th edition of Salem Film Fest takes place March 20 – 29, 2020 in over a half dozen venues in Salem, Beverly and Peabody, MA.

SFF is the largest all-documentary international film festival in Massachusetts. The fest engages audiences and filmmakers in a dialogue that strengthens our sense of community and fosters a better understanding of our world through the art of documentary film.  Our films inspire, educate, challenge and entertain with unforgettable characters and stories to help us better understand our world and our shared human experiences.

In our unique financial model, each film is matched with a local individual, organization, or business sponsor. Sponsorship money helps keep our commitment to never charge submission fees; to give honorariums to all participating filmmakers; to offer free lodging as well as significant travel assistance. In 2019, almost two-thirds of filmmakers (from the USA and overseas) participated in q&a’s after their screenings, as well as forums and visits to local schools

SFF also attracts film industry members and media, such as American Cinematographer Magazine,  the PBS documentary series POV, FRONTLINE and American Experience; and distributors such as American Public Television (APT) and Documentary Educational Resources.
