The St Cloud Film Fest is a year-long effort to educate, encourage, and develop a community of people who want to get involved with local filmmaking and movies. We provide a variety of opportunities for artists to present their work and bring independent cinema to the public. Opportunities include, but not limited to, children’s educational workshops, short film contests, local film showings, and creative community sponsorships. Festival events culminate with an annual celebration held in the fall to showcase local filmmakers’ work. We will be accepting both feature length submissions and short films again this year.


SCFF is now taking submissions. More information can be found on their website at
