Film Festivals


Sault Ste. Marie is fortunate enough to be a border city with Sault Ste. Marie Michigan which means we get two film festivals.  Please see below for more information about these great festivals.

Shadows Of The Mind Film Festival

Now in its 18th year the Shadows Of The Mind Film Festival is Sault Ste. Marie, ON leading film festival. The week long event focuses on films that promote and educate on mental health, addictions and prevalent social issues.
