Sutter Creek International Film Festival (SCIFF) garners high quality independent film submissions from the world over. The 2017 festival will feature films, documentaries, shorts and animated projects from filmmakers near and far. Our mission is to create a world-class festival that celebrates the many forms of the film industry, by showcasing films to educate, enlighten, inform, and most of all, entertain. SCIFF also offers master class seminars and filmmaker panels where amateur and professional filmmakers can discuss and advance their skills in the art of filmmaking. The everyday film patron will also love the information learned at these panels. SCIFF is fiscally partnered with Amador Community Foundation, and takes place in beautiful Sutter Creek in the heart of the mother lode.
ONERE uses magical realism to explore themes of resilience, loss and self-acceptance. The film premiered at the Duluth-Superior Film Festival (USA) last summer and won awards at the Altered Aesthetics Film Festival (USA), Flyway Film Festival (USA), FEDAXV (Chile) and the top “Human Path Award” at the Pi Greco Zen Film Festival (Italy).
