SLIFF is a regional, internationally themed film event dedicated to exploring cross-cultural understanding through the art of the cinema. Its mission is to enhance cultural diversity by bringing American independent productions, horizon-expanding international films and high-quality studio films to audiences before their commercial release. The Festival is especially concerned with providing film-goers and cineastes the opportunity to see works that would otherwise never screen in St. Louis. USA Today named SLIFF one of the 2019 top “10 amazing film festivals worth traveling for.”
The festival is produced by Cinema St. Louis, a not-for-profit organization.
PLEASE NOTE: Although the effects of the ongoing world health crisis remain unpredictable, we have reasonable hope that SLIFF will go on as scheduled in November. We encourage you to still submit your projects for consideration, and our staff will continue to evaluate submitted films.
