Where's 'St. Lawrence'?
Great question! St. Lawrence refers to the St. Lawrence River Valley of Northern New York in the US and Southern Ontario in Canada. This incredible setting encompasses the international capital of Ottawa and the rural beauty of small town America in Canton. This region is less than a day's drive from the major media capitals of North America: Toronto, Montreal, Boston and New York.
While the Festival's headquarters remain in Canton, NY, its footprint straddles the spectacular St. Lawrence River - the natural and political boundary between the US and Canada - making St. Lawrence International Film Festival the only event of its kind in the world.
