Overall Rating
  • A fun and cool one-day festival intended for local filmmakers. Suitable for both school film projects and films created by those with more experience. Patrick was great at communicating, and he and his team did a great job organizing and running the event. Thanks CSFF!

    The Chelmsford event was welcoming and well-managed by Patrick Snow, the director. There was a nice follow-up to the screening with a Q&A and discussion with the filmmakers. This was an enjoyable stand-out festival!

  • The Chelmsford Short Film Festival was extremely organized, communicative and generous to my high school students who won "Best Film 12 Minutes and Under". So glad to have a festival like this in Massachusetts!
