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.

The 2013 St Cloud Film Fest will begin on Saturday, November 16th with a Best of 2012 showing and announcement of the 2013 film categories, followed immediately by complete showings of a few films presented and featured by the festival's Executive Director.

Each night of the festival includes short and/or feature-length films as We celebrate local filmmakers with show times Sunday and Monday. We hope you will join us for question-and-answer sessions with filmmakers-in-attendance immediatly following each festival event, as well.

Our festival concludes with a showing of short features followed by the Award Show on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013. We will announce category winners as well as "Best Film" and celebrate the event experience together with retrospective features.
