Congratulations to all filmmakers and screenwriters whose work has been selected for the Fifth Annual Snake Alley Festival of Film. We received so many great entries, and we couldn’t be more excited to let the world see the fruits of your labor.

For those planning to attend we have some answers to your questions that will make your visit a little easier.

1. Each filmmaker or screenwriter will get two all access badges. This badge gets you into all SNAFF events including film blocks, stage readings, and SNAFFterparties.

2. In addition to a t-shirt, every filmmaker and screenwriter will receive a swag bag full of local gifts.

3. Registration is Thursday, June 23 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm, right next to the Capitol Theater (also known as the Annex). It connects to the theater, but provides a sound barrier as to not disturb the screenings and readings. If you cannot make it to Thursday’s registration, someone will always be there to assist you.

4. The filmmaker and screenwriter’s brunch takes place on Friday, June 24 at 10am at The Drake. Space is limited so please let me know in advance if you would like to participate. It’s a great time to get to know each other, learn about each other’s projects, and support one another’s films. Sign up by emailing me at

5. SNAFFter parties are all within two blocks of the theater and are free to attend.

6. Travel — We have two nearby airports, each about an hour and half away. One is in Iowa (Cedar Rapids) and the other in Illinois (Moline). Flying into either airport is a lot easier, as far as scheduling, then flying directly into Burlington.

7. The Capitol Theater is located downtown, within a short walking distance of many restaurants, coffee shops, a great record store, and several small shops. Take advantage of our beautiful downtown and support our sponsors!

8. Lastly, if you have artwork (pre-printed posters, cards, swag, etc.) and would like to send them for display, please send to:

Snake Alley Festival of Film
1301 S. 3rd St.
Burlington Iowa 52601.

This will be very helpful in promoting your film.
You can also bring your artwork with you if you plan on attending.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at

We can’t wait to see you all for SNAFF 2016!
