We’re film people.
We love every aspect of making movies, from the inception of a great idea to the thrill of applause after a powerful premiere. Our goal is to celebrate innovative films and filmmakers from around the world, around the state, and around the corner.
FFF runs throughout the year, hosting a monthly film series, script readings, specialized craft seminars, a virtual reality showcase, and special screening events, in addition to a dynamic four-day film festival November 4-7, with multiple screenings, panel discussions, and nightly parties. It all takes place in Fairfield, Connecticut, a picturesque and sophisticated community only an hour outside of New York City.
Films are screened at the SHU Community Theatre, a circa 1921 vaudeville palace that has been renovated into a state-of-the-art 400-seat cinema, performance, and education venue. Situated in the heart of Fairfield the theatre is surrounded by great restaurants, bars, and boutiques and is mere steps from the Metro North train station. Fairfield’s population of 60,000 expands to more than half a million people who live within a 25-mile radius.
We are proud to be a 50/50 filmmaker gender parity festival and are fully committed to equity, diversity, access, and inclusion. The Fairfield Film Festival programs thought-provoking films from around the globe that tell stories about people of different nationalities, races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, ages, and beliefs. We actively strive to elevate the work of filmmakers from a wide variety of backgrounds and abilities, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our organization stronger.
FFF is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
Join us November 4 – 7 for a memorable festival experience.
