2021 Sioux City International Film Festival
We go to great lengths to make sure the festival is a great time for not only our filmmakers but our audience too! We build a unique film festival every year around the world's filmmakers bringing something new to the cinema each and every year.
We try to program not only fantastic short films but also events, workshops, meet and greets, coffee hours, and even more!
In 2022, we plan to bring more films, more filmmakers, and even more by celebrating independent short film and their creators. We can't do this without the help of the community and all the people that help make our festival grow each and every year.
Please support us in our efforts to bring the 2022 Sioux City International Film Festival to life and our celebration of short films and the filmmakers who create them.
Since 2005, the Sioux City International Film Festival has showcased a variety of independent short films from all the around world. Each day of the Festival a different genre of film is featured. Those films in addition to being judged by a jury are also judged separately by the audience at the end of each presentation. Cash prizes and trophies will be given to the juried selections and to the audience favorites in each category. An additional Best of Festival Award will be given on the final day.
The non-profit 501(c)(3) Siouxland Institute of Film, Inc. and its creators have been working for almost two decades to promote independent film in Sioux City and the tri-state region including parts of Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska. The region has over 130,000 people, and thousands more living nearby. For the 15th year in a row, we will be bringing the Siouxland community together for the Sioux City International Film Festival to promote independent films and filmmakers to the people of Sioux City and the surrounding region.
