Snowtown Film Festival, a winter celebration of film, is held the last weekend in January in historic downtown Watertown, NY. Now in it's ninth year 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 from throughout the world that emphasize winter and the “North Country spirit”.  Feature length official selections, a juried short film competition, filmmaker panel discussions and an awards ceremony have marked the schedule, culminating in a unique, culturally-enriching event in the depth of lake effect snow season.
