The SFFA showcases the best in independent student cinema. We screen animation films, documentary and short films; The Film Festival includes conversations, talks and lectures for young upcoming filmmakers. With so much activity packed into just three days, we need volunteers.

We couldn’t do it without the energy and hard work provided by our enthusiastic volunteers. We invite you to sign up to join us this year.
