Snowtown Film Festival, a winter celebration of film, is held annually in historic downtown Watertown, NY. Over the past eight years STFF has grown from a humble film-lover’s weekend to a community-wide celebration of filmmaking. Home of the flannel casual red carpet reception, the festival features films that emphasize winter and the “North Country spirit”.  Official selections, a juried short film competition, filmmaker panel discussions and an awards ceremony, culminate in a unique, culturally-enriching event in the depth of lake effect snow season. 


STFF is going virtual for the 2022 celebration on Februay 19 -27, 2022. Working with the online film festival platform Eventive, STFF will present over 50 films, official selections, and panel conversations. Pass holders will have access to Eventive through AppleTV and Roku, or directly through the internet.

The 2022 festival will open with a preview screening on February 18th on WPBS at 7pm. Films will go live to pass holders on Saturday, February 19th.


Eventive provides full audience support. On each screening page, there is a "Need Help" button that takes audience members to an Audience FAQ page. If unable to find the answer in the FAQ, live chat support is available here
