"In these difficult times, films made by our talented and dedicated filmmakers offer us the added bonus of learning about the human condition, about filmmaking, and about engaging an audience as the first step towards awareness leading to social change. We are lucky in that our hard work as volunteers is rewarded by this content." Festival Founding Artistic Director Nora Armani
Actress/ Filmmaker Nora Armani founded SRFF in 2013 as a response to the proliferation of violence and violent forms of storytelling. SRFF believes in the power of film in raising awareness of social issues and promoting positive social change. This new edition is even more impactful as it covers Climate Change and Women, Immigration and Refugees, Empowering Women, Indigenous Peoples' Rights, LGBTQ Rights, Genocide and Holocaust, Youth and Children, Disability, Incarceration and Freedom, Politics and Social Equality, Sex Trafficking, Racism, BIPOC cultures and colorism, and Life during COVID. SRFF believes that positive social change can happen through the impact of Socially Relevant™films on society.
