St Spyridon Orthodox
Christian Film Festival
Mark your calendars for July 11, 2021
Join us on the 2nd Saturday in July for the next Saint Spyridon Christian Film Festival in beautiful and historic downtown Newport, Rhode Island. Fellowship begins at 9:30 am. Viewing begins at 10 am followed by a free luncheon and awards ceremony,
and then … a free two hour sail on a captained and crewed yacht in Narragansett Bay for all festival registrants.
Would you like to make and share a short video about your Church even though you have never used a camcorder before, or you have only done a little bit of video work?
Then the Saint Spyridon Orthodox Christian Film Festival is for you.
