Founded by Artistic Director Nora Armani, SRFF is based in New York. SRFF launched in Manhattan, the entertainment capital of the world in March 2014 as the festival's inaugural year at the Quad Cinema in Greenwich Village in New York City.

To date, SRFF has screened an international slate of over 700 films from 40 countries since its inception in 2013. The festival offers industry panels on Distribution, Storytelling, Diversity Casting, Marketing, and Film Finance in partnership with the School of Visual Arts Social Documentary Film School, and organizes spotlight panels on such themes as Empowering women, Low Budget Film Production workshop with SAG-AFTRA, Filming in New York with the NY Governor's Office for Film and TV Development. Script readings and more. New categories that are added are Children's Films, Web series, and Animation.

Filmmaker Q&A's follow most of the screenings where filmmakers are present in the case of almost all the feature films and most short films when possible. "Meet the Filmmaker" live broadcasts are held on a regular basis and broadcast live on YouTube and Facebook. The festival is devoted solely to filmmakers who deal with socially relevant film content. The film selections are made following the submission process on FilmFreeway.

The launch of the Socially Relevant Film Festival coincides with the growing trends related to socially conscientious consumers who seek alternatives to invasive films that rely on gratuitous violence and sensationalism to make box office numbers.
