About the Saint Augustine Film Festival

Celebrating their 15th year in 2025, the Saint Augustine Film Festival is an outstanding variety of foreign and independent films and documentaries; more than 50 independent and international films!  In fact, you’ll see films you would not find anywhere else in North Florida!

The Film Festival originally was brought to St. Augustine to give independent filmmakers an opportunity to present their work before live audiences. It has become so much more. The Film Festival’s reputation has grown among fans and within the film industry providing festival goers the opportunity to view some of the most acclaimed independent films.

Filmmakers, actors and producers attend the festival.  2024 saw several special guests on hand.  They includes include Rod Lurie, Mark Ciardi, Pamela Poitier, Melora Hardin, Denny Tedesco, Leland Sklar, Wendie Malick and other actors/filmmakers.

Along with a lineup of fantastic films, the Film Festival also usually hosts three ‘after’ parties. During this time, attendees are invited to mingle and discuss the films with producers, directors, writers, and actors. Each party features food as well as an activity.  However, only some of the parties feature complimentary cocktails/beer/wine or an open bar. Furthermore, the only way to attend any or all three parties is to purchase an All-Access ticket.  Ticket options for the Film Festival include:  All Access, All Film, and Single Film.
