Parties, Galas, and Special Events
At SIFF we do far more than watch films, we celebrate and honor them!
Throughout the festival we present all manner of special events: tributes, galas, live music, and of course films with parties, to all within the SIFF community. Who doesn't like a party with fellow film enthusiasts?
