The Scenic City Film Festival was formed by a group of film enthusiasts as an outlet to help local film and video artists create, network, and collaborate. Since 2014, the festival has screened not only feature length films but also short films directed and produced by international filmmakers, tackling diverse topics and multiple genres ranging from documentaries and animation, to narrative and experimental film.

The festival has moved to September 29 - 30, 2017. We will continue to celebrate all things local by collaborating not only with artists but also with local businesses and public spaces.
