The Sierra Canyon Film Festival, in the tradition of advancing the art of cinema, continues to improve each year.The 2016 festival was our most successful to date. We filled all 161 seats, and the evening program included a guest speaker: Alison Abate. Ms.Abate, versatile entertainment industry professional, is a producer,director producer,actress, and writer. She is well-known for her work in animation and has produced such hits as The Lego Movie, Frankenweenie, The Corpse Bride, and nine other popular films. 

               Ms.Abate offered valuable advice to the audience. She spoke about how to break into the genre of film. Her unique perspective and interesting anecdotes proved that there is no substitute for perseverance, dedication, and hard work, but the film industry is open to new talent and artistic individuals. 


             In 2017, we are expecting our most diverse submission pool yet.  We will again feature another prominent guest speaker and an exciting program of student films, including documentaries, comedies, music videos, and dramatic presentations. Of course, the film festival welcomes other  creative formats, as well.


Come share the experience!
