Sacramento International Film Festival

By supplying essential networking opportunities and open dialogue with intelligent, creative and inquisitive filmmakers and consumers, the festival attracts intelligent audiences from many places and serves to promote the Sacramento community as a cultural center for our region.

The Sacramento International Film Festival (SFF) is an unincorporated not-for-profit arts organization with year-round activities, culminating in an annual film celebration in April. With years of experience, SFF organizers offer programming and events for film enthusiasts of all economic, cultural and educational backgrounds. With the support of a passionate arts community, SFF will attract the best filmmakers, distinguished industry guests, and thousands of film enthusiasts from around the world. As a centerpiece for film arts in Northern California, we accept only Sacramento premieres, meaning films that have not previously shown in our region. Filmmakers will enjoy the Festival for its exceptional hospitality and its commitment to visionary artists.

With enthusiastic audiences and beautiful venues, the Festival offers a fantastic opportunity to premiere a film in the Capital of California while creating publicitity for films that open here. We are proud to offer this first class event in celebration of artists and their craft.
