    Second time screening in this festival, the night goes by quick - always a fun selection and hosts are communicative and generous. Would submit again!

    Great fun and very locally focused film fest that had great support from the local community. The organizers are very on top of it in terms of being responsive, communicating everything clearly and just generally very friendly. Really liked the local focus. Films featured covered a wide range of genres. I can't speak to the networking because we had to dash to another fest on the same day but overally highly recomment local filmmakers submit and attend.

    An incredible film festival! The SSSFF team has been helpful and responsive in our communication and provided such a cool platform for local filmmakers to screen films in a theater full of audiences! We were really happy to be part of it and look forward to submitting again in the future.

    This fest was great. They stuck it to covid by having an awesome drive-in, with a great line up of local talent. They even had a portable jumper on-hand when our car's battery annoyingly died. Also free french fries, a box of swag, and a fun "red carpet" photo op for filmmakers. Good times!
