2013 Festival

Our Mission:

The Southern Colorado Film Festival cultivates conversation and enriches the spirit and creativity of the San Luis Valley by providing diverse independent film programming that is relevant and which connects the issues of our region to the world.


The Southern Colorado Film Festival seeks to relate the unique issues of our community in the San Luis Valley of Colorado to the world through the medium of independent film. Building off of the success of the Alamosa Film Festival, we have organized this festival to use the power of film as a means of enhancing communication, and reaching a sense of community and spirit, and bringing voice to important matters from around the world. Now in our inaugural year, we provide a venue for independent filmmakers to showcase their work and bring their creativity, viewpoints, and personality to a new audience.

In an effort to reflect the issues pertinent to both our community and communities across the globe we have chosen the theme LAND, WATER, COMMUNITY to represent this year's festival. In our rural region of southern Colorado these concepts, both tangible and abstract, manifest as symbols of where we have come from and where we want to go.
