Salem Film Fest

About the Member

Come to Salem, see the world. 

Since 2007, Salem Film Fest (SFF) has brought the world’s best independent documentaries and their makers to Boston’s North Shore. Now the largest international documentary film festival in Massachusetts, the event annually presents features, shorts and special events to a loyal audience of thousands. The festival is mostly run by volunteers through a non-profit entity, Salem Community Arts Center, Inc.

The 17th edition of our fest will take place March 21-24, 2024 and is returning to an all in-person screening format, with filmmaker q&as as well as parties and other special events.
