Dedicated to showcasing the best shorts from around the world, with an emphasis on story.


The Snake Alley Festival of Film is dedicated to showcasing the best short films from around the world. Films will screen at the beautifully restored Capitol Theater in the heart of downtown Burlington, Iowa. The theater boasts state of the art equipment and can comfortably seat more than 400 people.

A town with a rich history dramatically situated on the bluffs of the Mississippi River, Burlington is a growing center for commerce and culture. Known for fine dining, vibrant nightlife and blues-like atmosphere, it is a perfect host city for a film festival.

The festival derives its name from Snake Alley, a street constructed in 1884 and designed to connect an upscale residential neighborhood to the business district of downtown Burlington. Named by Ripley’s Believe It or Not as “The Crookedest Street in the World,” it remains the city’s #1 tourist attraction and draws visitors from around the world.
