SR Socially Relevant™ Film Festival New York, is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit film festival. It was founded in 2013 by actress/filmmaker Nora Armani as a response to the proliferation of violence and violent forms of storytelling, and to honor the memory of a violent attack against members of her family who lost their lives. The mission of SRFF is the promotion of films and filmmakers that deal with socially relevant film content. In its first five years, the festival has successfully served as a platform for 287 films from 35 countries, has offered industry panels covering such topics as distribution, storytelling, diversity casting, funding, marketing, low budget filmmaking, filming in New York, and scriptwriting, and has presented over 40 awards to deserving talented filmmakers from all over the world and has helped them reach larger audiences year after year.
