Mystic Film Festival

Mystic Film Festival is an annual event that showcases independent feature-length and short-form narrative films and documentaries from around the world. The 4th Annual Mystic Film Festival will take place from October 21-24, 2021. The festival brings together a diverse group of filmmakers and audiences to explore ideas, discuss the filmmaking process, and celebrate creativity. Through engaging community events, industry panels, and film screenings by acclaimed and up-and-coming talent, our goal is to make the festival a special experience for filmmakers and audiences alike. Now in its fourth year, the festival takes place over three days and four nights at various venues in Mystic, Connecticut and neighboring Connecticut and Rhode Island towns. Our cornerstone venue is Mystic Luxury Cinemas in Olde Mistick Village. We open with a local premiere and close the festival with an awards event where the best film in each category is recognized, as well as a screenplay competition.
