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:

This is the Festival's fifth year and it promises many outstanding features, documentaries and shorts. And right now is a great time to get tickets at a great price, both for individual films and for an all-festival pass. Click through to the website or go to As usual, Cinema Village hosts so many important events like this, along with a full schedule of some really outstanding quality films. It is a rare week that I am not there for at least one of their films. Congratulations to Cinema Village for hosting the Socially Relevant Film Festival!

A great festival, not to be missed!

SRFF has quickly become the premier film festival in New York focusing exclusively on socially relevant films that deal with a wide range of social issues. The short, documentary and narrative features on offer every year, create a platform for filmmakers whose work would otherwise go unseen. A scriptwriting competition also highlights to date unproduced works and showcases the finalist scripts through readings. An interesting component of the festival is the workshops and industry panels that complement the festival with a rich educational component. I love attending and participating in this festival, and have, in the past screened one of my shorts there. Thank you SRFF! Please keep up the good work.
