Now in its eighth consecutive year at the festival, this filmmaker-centered program has expanded to two days due to growing demand. Participants will develop skills and comfort in verbally presenting their projects and trailers or scenes in a safe space where they can hone their skills in pitching their film project.
Pre-registration required


Conversation: Cut-Cut

Friday, March 29, 4:30 – 6 PM @ Painting and Drawing Room – SCA
This year SDFF screeners and programmers watched over 400 films … some multiple times. If there was one abracadabra we could activate in the filmmaking universe it is this: Cut, cut, cut that film to save it. Vivien Hillgrove, a member of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, has done just that in her remarkable career, and is always a generous mentor to the filmmaking community. We can count on a lively, informative afternoon..

Film Screenings in various locations

This is our 12th year of exhibiting the non-fiction work of independent filmmakers. Each film we program has characters of extraordinary presence, whether animate or not, and compelling stories. Each is a signature of excellence in craft. SDFF exists to fulfill filmmakers’ desires to be seen, to be heard and to have an opportunity to make a difference. We are known for programming work for a discerning audience that enjoys being challenged as well as entertained. Frequently there are discussions with the filmmaker after the showing.
