Film is a portal to stories we haven’t seen or heard before. But the stories are familiar ones. Stories about Love and hate. Life and death. Victory and defeat. Great film. like great art, resonates with all of us because it finds truths that are close to the heart. You may not be an Elizabethan heiress but you know what it’s like to fall in love. You may not be fighter pilot but you know what it’s like to live through loss. You may not be a butcher but you know what it’s like to struggle to make ends meet.

Solstice Film Festival is about people from all walks of life. People with open minds coming together. People who want to experience more than who they are in their daily lives. People who believe that there’s more to life than meets the eye.
