3rd Annual Mystic Film Festival

October 22-25, 2020

Mystic Film Festival is an annual event that showcases independent feature-length and short-form narrative films and documentaries from around the world.

The festival brings together a diverse group of filmmakers and audiences to explore ideas, discuss the filmmaking process, and celebrate creativity.  Through engaging community events, industry panels, and film screenings by acclaimed and up-and-coming talent, we aim to make the festival a special experience for filmmakers and audiences alike.

Now in its third year, the festival takes place over three days and four nights at various venues in Mystic, Connecticut and neighboring Connecticut Shoreline towns. Our cornerstone venue is Mystic Luxury Cinemas in Olde Mistick Village. We open with a local premiere and close the festival with an awards event where the best film in each category is recognized. And we’re excited to offer something new in 2020; a screenplay competition, where the winners will be announced at the festival in October.

Our festival was created by area filmmakers and artists to nurture local talent, to promote films made in Connecticut and other parts of the Northeast, and to bring unique cinematic works to our community.

Thank you to our sponsors and partners. We appreciate your support of the Mystic Film Festival!
