Entering its fifth year, the Salem Film Fest is emerging as a leading American all-documentary film festival, showcasing a rich and diverse collection of the year’s best work from all over the world. The upcoming Salem Film Festival will take place March 1st - 8th, 2012 at CinemaSalem.
The festival finds its spirit in Salem’s history as the first great international city in America – establishing trade with the Far East and flooding this country with art, story, and culture from every continent.
At this moment of unprecedented promise – and unprecedented danger – documentary film can help us form a clearer vision of our commonalities as the human family, and an understanding of how to approach an uncertain future together.
Because the Salem Film Fest focuses on well-told stories with strong technical elements and interesting visual approaches, each film screened over the week-long schedule represents an immersive aesthetic experience, an opportunity to glimpse the world with fresh eyes, and leave changed as a result.
