Film Festival 2021


The Festival will run February 25-March 8, 2021 with the Film Awards Gala on February 25. Full days of film screenings will begin February 26th including the Opening Night presentation that evening and will conclude with Best of Fest on March 8. 

The health and safety of our patrons and staff, as well as a memorable and enjoyable festival experience, remain at the center of our focus. Much has changed since last festival and we must adapt our plans, timelines, and production to meet current and future health and safety guidelines that will affect festival operations. We thank our members, sponsors, audience, and community for your patience and understanding as we continue our planning. 

  • Film Awards seats and tables and Festival pass sale date is to be determined.
  • Individual tickets will go on sale closer to the festival. 

As details become solidified, we will continue to communicate electronically and invite you to share ideas. To help us organize community insight, we will be sending a survey in September and ask for your honest participation. 

Our staff and Board of Directors is looking forward to spending PSIFF 2021 with you.
