Founded in 1609, the city of Santa Fe has had a lively art and cultural scene since the very beginning when the earliest Santa Feans settled in the area around 1050 A.D.
Another side to their impressive art scene is the 5 day Santa Fe Independent Film Festival, set to take place on October 13-17, 2021. One of the top annual events to happen in New Mexico, the festival has presented over 500 films since it was founded in 2009. The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival, also known as SFiFF, was named “a young Sundance” by IndieWire Magazine and one of the “Coolest Film Festivals on the Planet” by Moviemaker Magazine. SFiFF is attended by more than 75,000 people each year and screens over 50 feature films and 75 short films over the 5 days. Can’t make it to this event but still want to participate? You’re in luck, as you can watch the screenings virtually from any computer or smartphone.
