Locally-minded, innovative, and thoughtfully curated, the Duluth Superior Film Festival provides a platform for regional artists to showcase their unique worldviews, offers meaningful grants and education to emerging talent, and exposes our region to underseen stories.

Inspired by and indebted to the breathtaking backdrop of the North Shore and greater region, we present year-round film screenings, learning opportunities, and eye-opening discussions. Duluth Superior Film Festival works within our community to bring deeper awareness and appreciation for the art of film to all who seek it.

Duluth Superior Film Festival seeks to challenge the notion of who and what is considered the ‘norm’ when it comes to filmmaking, and we’re dedicated to making space for all communities to tell their stories. We honor our homeland by nurturing local talent, championing media literacy, and making the art of film more accessible and engaging for all.

We are seeking documentary, narrative fiction, and experimental films that fit into our new categories this year.

  • Was very honored to have my film, KNEE HIGH, selected for the regional shorts program at this year's festival. Great communication and its SO COOL that audiences are able to see films for free in Duluth. Love this fest, hope to make it out next year!
