By SCIFF standards any film that is 50 minutes and over in length is considered a feature film. All films must carry English Subtitles. All films which are selected / nominated for the Festival will be informed by emails & listed on our websites. Feature Films can carry any subject respecting humanity issues and cultures topics. The SCIFF carries on this tradition and makes way for new developments in feature films by selecting original, unique features to screen at the festival.
