2018 FESTIVAL SCHEDULE

From the opening night party till the final program, SOMA Film Festival is 3 days packed with amazing and entertaining short and feature films, as well as our popular Kids, Youth Filmmaker, and Locals Programs. Tickets are affordable and many of them come with a filmmaker Q & A to follow the screening, and free popcorn and beverages.

This year, SOMA Film Festival will also be offering babysitting services by Oh! Canary (a local youth art and crafts school) on Saturday from noon to 6:30 PM. Cost will be only $10 per child ages 4 to 10 with the purchase of a single program pass.

We do hope you can come join us this year and we'll see you at the movies!
