About The SIFF


Syracuse International Film Festival

Idea Statement

SIFF recognizes that our mission to engage, entertain, inform and inspire the CNY community through film and media programs is inseparable from our commitment to cultivate spaces that champion diversity, equity, and intersectional belonging. We believe that promoting intersectional representation and curating content that highlights a vibrant array of identities, cultures, and lived experiences is mission critical. We furthermore recognize that it is imperative to use our platform to increase accessibility within film, uplift historically excluded voices, and spread awareness of social issues that actively impact our local and international landscapes.
