4th Annual Mystic Film Festival

October 21-24, 2021

The Mystic Film Festival will screen a variety of new, independent films from around the region and the world and host post- screening Q&As with filmmakers, panel discussions, workshops, networking parties, and special events.

Opening night will be an exciting event for filmmakers, cast, media, festival partners, sponsors, distributors, and ticket holders. The festival will close with an awards ceremony when the best films in each category are recognized, as well as the winners of our second, annual screenplay competition.

Mystic, Connecticut

A Destination Festival

At the halfway point 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 hiking along the pristine Connecticut shoreline and nature reserves.

Mystic is easily accessible by car and rail. The T.F. Green International Airport in Providence RI and the Tweed New Haven Regional Airport are both within an hour’s drive.
