What is SIFF?


Sims International Film Festival started out with a small idea that has grown into a moster of a community event. SIFF is about Sims Machinima, sure, but it is also so much more. SIFF has grown into a showcase of community talent including music videos, Sims Bands and celebrities, photography, Red Carpet Galas, stories, and buildings to host SIFF events.

SIFF happens twice a year, and has been running since Spring of 2010. The film premiere dates are always March 15th and September 15th, but the SIFF Buzz - the fun leading up to the film premieres - is where everyone get's to join in as the excitement for the film releases builds.

This will be a permament thread for SIFF updates and Simatography features and showcases. For all of the details just click on the banner below to get to our site.
