About the 30th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival

St Louis FilmOne of the reasons our real estate agents love St. Louis so much is all the wonderful local events. It seems that any time of year, from spring to winter, there's a fun celebration to attend. If you're a film lover — or even someone who just enjoys the occasional movie — then the 30th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival is an upcoming event you won't want to miss.

History of the Festival

The St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) was founded in 1992 and has been held every year since. The founders intended the festival to promote and present new and interesting films in order to preserve movie-making as an art.

The first few St. Louis International Film Festivals were held in April, but in 1995, the event moved to November. In 1998, the festival grew large enough for its headquarters to move to the Central West End. Well-known films featured over the years include Kinsey, which was screened in 2004, and Up in the Air, featured in 2009.
