MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The mission of the Catskill Mountains Film Festival is to promote the film business in New York State and beyond, to showcase local, regional and worldwide talent, and to develop a new generation of filmmakers and film-goers.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
In the center of the beautiful Catskill Mountains, a new cultural institution is born. The Catskill Mountains Film Festival (CMFF) promises to enrich the already fertile artistic life of the region by promoting the film business in New York State and beyond, showcasing local, regional and worldwide talent, and nurturing a new generation of filmmakers. Its mission is to provide a forum for filmmakers to gather and screen their films, network, and exchange information about their craft. The CMFF will emphasize youth and innovation and the creative response of young filmmakers to technological advances that now offer immense opportunities for the budding film artist.

The CMFF is jointly sponsored by the State University of New York at Delhi (SUNY Delhi) and the Greater Delhi Area Chamber of Commerce, both of which will provide their considerable talent, resources, and facilities to assist in making the festival a successful, ongoing event.

The CMFF Awards Ceremony and Festival Weekend will be held every June, primarily on the SUNY Delhi campus, but also at suitable venues in the towns and villages of Delaware County, from theaters and auditoriums to outdoor public spaces. The weekend will begin with a gala reception celebrating the participants and the film community, followed by 2 days of screenings of close to 100 selected films. The CMFF will select certain films for the CMFF "Catty" awards at both the student and professional levels for all categories.
