We'll just forget 2020 happened.

We did it again! SSFF2019 was amazing, but we expect nothing less from the amazing independent filmmakers who make our little film festival one of the top rated in our tier. Thank you! Enjoy this little trip down memory lane.

Hello Patrick!

The 5th annual 2016 SSFF was a smash success! Photographer Kristen Hughes captured some great moments including our special guest Horror film director Luigi Cozzi, who made the Southbridge scene all the way from Italy. Thank you to all our great volunteers and especially Dimitri and the Starlite Gallery Gang!
