lYou are invited to participate in the 15th Annual Sonoma County Student Film Festival. There are many ways to get involved. Choose one or all three!
- Submit a film by March 1st. Films submitted must have been made within the last two years, be less than 15 minutes in length and have a Sonoma County student involved in the production. Anyone in the production may submit the film (not just the director) and both fiction and non-fiction works are eligible. The window for submission for the Sonoma County Student Film Festival closes on March 1st, 2023. Film submission will be made via Film Freeway: filmfreeway.com/SCSFF
- Volunteer for the Selection and Planning Committee. The committee will meet on March 2nd via Zoom to brainstorm on event planning and receive an orientation to screening the films. Afterward, committee members will have one week to view all the views before meeting again to discuss and select the films for the festival. We also need event volunteers before and during the event. Email us at [email protected] to volunteer.
- Attend the festival. Friday, March 31st, 2023, at 6:00 pm. Select films will be shown to the public and will be followed by a Q & A. General admission to the festival is a suggested $5 donation, but filmmakers and their crew in attendance get in for free.
The Sonoma County Student Film Festival was initiated 15 years ago by the Student Government President, Amanda Swan, and launched at SRJC Petaluma. The Sonoma County Film Festival (SCSFF) encourages students to build academic and professional connections with their peers and community. The goal of the event is to connect and introduce student filmmakers within the community to our own Film Studies and Digital Filmmaking programs here at SRJC. Featured filmmakers receive passes to attend the Film Fest Petaluma, Sonoma County’s Premiere international short films festival. This program is the result of collaboration between the SRJC Student Life and Communication Studies departments.
