The Purpose of the Adventure is the Adventure itself. The Shredder Film Festival is a celebration of stories.


Now in its 6th year running, the SSIFF has grown tremendously. in 2009 the first Shredder Festival was held in the upstairs function room of the smallest library in town. The room sat 20 people comfortably leaving just enough room for an old broken projector and an off white sheet on the wall. Since then SSIFF has grown in numbers, but remains true to its purpose: to showcase the talents and the stories of filmmakers who's work often goes unnoticed. This years festival is geared toward broadening the the knowledge of independent film through the small town of Quechee, Vermont by bringing in some international talent while also boosting our local spotlight and showcasing more New England based filmmakers than any previous year!
