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. This year will be a hybrid format of in-person and virtual screenings, filmmaker Q&A, and events. It will take place in-person Thursday, March 24 to Sunday, March 27, followed by virtual programming Monday, March 28 through Sunday, April 3.

Salem Film Fest will present 27 feature films and 4 shorts blocks and host 20 Filmmaker Q&As to accompany the in-person screenings. Films will be screened at the Peabody Essex Museum, the Cabot Theatre, and the “new” Cinema Salem. Four free events will also be offered featuring live music over 4 days. Additional free events include Mass Reality Check (a showcase for college shorts) and Keeping It Reel (a showcase of high school shorts).
