About Our 2020 Festival

It’s Virtual! 12 weeks, 24 films, and Filmmaker Q&As

The Stony Brook Film Festival, presented by Island Federal, showcases the best in independent film premieres. The Festival usually lasts for ten days, and all films screen in Staller Center’s main stage theatre at Stony Brook University. This year, to ensure the continued health of their community, patrons, staff, and students, the Stony Brook Film Festival is partnering with IndieFlix Festivals and going virtual.

The Film Festival offers talented performances by stars of the future and familiar faces. The Stony Brook Film Festival invites filmmakers to represent their films and participate in question and answer sessions after screenings, which will still be offered in this year’s virtual Festival. Attendees hear from directors, actors, producers and crew from all over the world.
