The Shawna Shea Film Festival celebrates independent films and the people who make them. Established in 2012 as a program of the Shawna E. Shea Memorial Foundation Inc., SSFF honors Shawna’s unique independent spirit by bringing audiences films that share the same quality.
The Shawna Shea Film Festival is a program of the Shawna E. Shea Memorial Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. Visit our website at www.shawnafoundation.org.
In 2015, the Shawna E. Shea Memorial Foundation Inc. was incorporated as a non-profit organization, continuing and expanding the educational and charitable work we do. The mission of the Shawna E. Shea Memorial Foundation Inc. is to support young people, especially women, in filmmaking, performance arts and other artistic and cultural endeavors through financial assistance, collaborative fellowships, mentoring and educational opportunities. We established the Foundation in memory of Shawna, a creative and artistic young woman who lost her life too soon and we strive to sustain her legacy of encouraging young people who live in the margins of society and yet have dreams and aspirations in the fields of film and performance arts.
In addition to the Shawna E. Shea Memorial scholarship for graduating Uxbridge High School seniors and a second related scholarship in the name of her late cousin Michael Liberty, the Foundation also sponsors and hosts the annual Shawna Shea Film Festival.
