SR Socially Relevant Film Festival NY is a platform for emerging and established filmmakers from around the world who wish to tell social-issue-based, human interest stories. This year, we are partnered with such organizations as Apne Aap Women Worldwide, UN Multimedia, and Cinema Libre Studio, amongst others. In an industry where many are ostracized and real issues are sidelined, we strive to spotlight stories that aim to positively impact the human experience.
The Fifth edition of SRFF runs March 16-22 right here at Cinema Village with a beautiful program of 70 films from 35 countries. There will also be Q&A’s with filmmakers, industry panels and workshops, spotlight events, a script-writing contest, and a VR/360º film screening event and competition! We’re also proud to highlight that 50% of all films in the Official Selection were directed by women - not decided by quota but prompted by the quality of the films! All information regarding the program, as well as links to tickets, can be found on our website:
