The Sherman Oaks Film Festival


The Sherman Oaks Film Festival (SOFF) celebrates its fourth year with four days of fantastic, completely independent films.

Founded by long-time residents and industry veterans who felt that Sherman Oaks deserves to hold the best film festival in the Valley, this year’s SOFF features screenings of 32 short films and four feature films November 21-24, 2019.

Ranging from uproariously funny to darkly tragic, from a surreal art film to a punk rock documentary, from a remarkably shot martial arts battle to hilarious animation shorts, the Sherman Oaks Film Festival has something for everyone.

We’ve got two All-Access passes good for all 12 festival screenings, plus an invite to mixers to meet the filmmakers, for one lucky winner. What do you have to do? Fill out this form which will sign you up for our weekly NoHo News

This year SOFF was recognized as one of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals in the world! Determined by the filmmakers using FilmFreeway, the top festival submission platform worldwide, this honor ranked SOFF in the top 1.5% of more than 8,000 film festivals and creative contests. We believe our great reviews come from our friendly, neighborhood atmosphere and our extended Q&As that bring audiences and filmmakers together.
