Connecting Community Through Film

Santa Clarita, often called the “Hollywood North”, is a thriving community of artists and creators. It is no surprise that Santa Clarita is a critical part of the filmmaking community with 65% of its residents working in the industry. Additionally, the city has the most filming locations and studios in Los Angeles county along with over 250 recent big budget, studio projects being shot there (not counting independents).

Due to its extreme creative community, Santa Clarita has always been home to many different events supporting all facets of the arts. SCIFF may be debuting in 2021, but the Santa Clarita arts community has been evolving for years. The film festival is the first singular event of its kind that hopes to bring together all types of artistic mediums into one remarkable affair.
The Santa Clarita International Film Festival (SCIFF) is a non-profit organization committed to empowering the Santa Clarita Valley using film as the primary medium to showcase the entire artistic community.
