For the love of film

Each year, the Salt Spring Film Festival offers islanders a window through which to see lives and worlds far outside their own. The cream of Canadian and international documentaries, seen throughout the year at the world’s finest film festivals, are brought to our doorstep. In order to sustain this outstanding cultural event in this, our 17th year, we need financial support. This non-profit festival has a lean budget and inflation increases each year. What keeps the festival going is the generosity of people in our community. People like you.
