    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!

  • The whole team did a great job making the event memorable while also following safety measures. I loved the drive-in experience! I had some questions before I submitted my film and they always answered quickly and were so encouraging. They very clearly want to celebrate filmmakers and the stories they are trying to share. I would recommend this film festival to anyone in the area. Great experience all around, and I hope to be back next year.

    What a great time. In spite of a bit of rain, the drive-in went splendidly, was very well organized, and even had a couple of surprises. (Free fries? Sign me up!) Happy to have been a part of SSSFF 2021 and look forward to next year.

  • The SSSFF team did a great job adapting to Covid times. The drive-in set up was a lot of fun and a wholesome experience after a year on Zoom or at home. Kevin's communication was top-notch and is a very understanding guy!

    Had a music video that was selected for the 2020 festival, and wasn't exactly sure if I should attend or what to expect. REALLY glad I ended up going; it was a completely packed theater filled with awesome filmmakers + creatives. The humans that run it are super encouraging and nice as well. Will be submitting every year.
