The Stony Brook Film Festival is held at the Staller Center for the Arts, located on the Stony Brook University campus, Long Island, New York. Filmmaker friendly, with a huge 40-foot wide screen, 1,000 seat theatre and state of the art digital and 35mm projection equipment, the Stony Brook Film Festival is a great place to screen and see new and exciting Independent, foreign and art films.
