The inaugural Silver Falls Film Festival will be a celebration of film and storytelling in Oregon's beautiful Willamette Valley, hosted by the Silverton Arts Association.

This family-friendly film festival will be the opening night entertainment of the long-running Silverton Arts Festival, a popular destination for artistically-minded folks from across the state. Selected short films will screen outdoors on Friday night, August 18. We hope to highlight creative voices from around our neighborhood, and around the world– submit your film and join us!

A local cohort of judges from a variety of artistic disciplines will present several awards the night of the festival.
