About the Location

Mystic, Connecticut

Halfway between New York City and Boston, lies the beautiful New England seaport of Mystic, Connecticut. Known for its rich seafaring past and maritime history, it is a popular destination for food and locally-produced craft beer and wine; art galleries and museums; and sailing, kayaking, and hiking along the pristine Atlantic Ocean shoreline.

Mystic is easily accessible by car and train, and the Tweed New Haven Regional Airport and T.F. Green International Airport in Rhode Island are within an hour’s drive.

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