The CHRISTIAN FAMILY FILM FESTIVAL will follow Biblical ideals not Hollywood ideals.

Due to the tremendous success of our first Christian Family Film Festival we are having a Fall Fest so Christian filmmakers do not have to wait until 2018 to have their films screened! The CFFF Fall Fest 2017 will be held in a historic town with one of the oldest town squares. The Christian Family Film Festival will be held during that weekend of September 29, 30 and October 1, 2017 in Ellington, NY at The Enchanted Ellington's, CARRIAGE HOUSE CINEMA .

This is the second festival of the 2017 season.

Filmmakers who attend will have a warm intimate screening with fellowship and networking with other Christian filmmakers in the unique setting for this venue.

The historic Carriage House Cinema has a 12 foot screen, professional projector and sound. The entire interior is almost completely intact from its 1849 construction.

An opening reception for the CFFF 2017 Fall Fest will take place in the elegant main house, THE ENCHANTED ELLINGTON, a Greek Revival structure with exquisite old-world furnishings, paintings, chandeliers and antiques.

    Wasn't able to actually attend, but received great communication and felt that the film was welcomed. The wrap up on InDvue was a nice touch for those of us who couldn't make it. My hopes are to attend and meet other filmmakers with our next project.

    Christian Family Film Festival is a great festival for first time filmmakers and Christian films. We can have a good time to communicate with filmmakers, share different perspectives and give helpful feedback after watching the films. People can really enjoy the festival like staying with family. Smile comfortably, listen patiently, communicate heartedly. We indeed made some great new friends. Thank you, CFFF.

    It's a small film festival good for first time filmmakers. Has the potential to grow into a big festival due to the love of the arts in all of the communities around it. Good for family and Christian movies and great for first time filmmakers.
