BSAF 2019: Salem Film Fest, Day Seven

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! Boston Springs A Fethival 2019 is officially underway, and we’ll have info for all the various festivals and their schedules every day, so be sure to keep your browser turned to for all the latest info!

It’s the final day for all-documentary Salem Film Fest, which concludes with closing night film “Satan And Adam” at 7 PM. Here’s the description from the official festival website:

Streetwise Harlem music legend, Mr. Satan, and Adam Gussaw, a blues harmonica playing Princeton grad, are an unlikely musical duo.  Featuring an electric blues soundtrack, the film follows their decades long journey, from chance meeting on the streets of Harlem to international stardom in a tale of tragedy, triumph and rebirth.

Tickets ARE still available but probably not for long – you can get them here.

Following the film, there will be a closing night reception at The Cellar at Hotel Salem, which is just up the street from the cinema, at 203-209 Essex Street; the fun begins at 9:15, and is open to the public, there will be a cash bar.

VENUE INFO:  CinemaSalem is located in the Witch City Mall, One East India Square, in Salem.

Films showing at SFF always begin with a three or four minute short from the “Salem Sketches” series, celebrating the history of the city and its many inhabitants, many of whom own unique businesses that help to make Salem the wonderful tourist destination it has become. They are a delightful slice of life. And another little perk – there’s almost always a musical performance before and between the shows, local musicians showcasing their work for everyone, so be sure to spread them some love as well! Also, don’t forget that many screenings at SFF have special guests in attendance for discussion and Q&A sessions afterward.

For complete information on the festival and its upcoming offerings, be sure to visit the official website at! We have attended this wonderful festival all but one year since 2012 and we have NEVER been disappointed. You will find that SFF is truly a unique experience and is a great fest to cut your festival teeth on if you’ve never been to one before.

COURTESY ADVISORY¬† – if you park in the Witch City Mall Garage, where CinemaSalem is located, and are attending a late screening, you will not be able to access the garage through the mall after it closes. You will need to go out the venue’s main street entrance, turn right and walk 1/2 block to the garage exit, then walk to your vehicle from there. It’s a bit of pain, but not that difficult.

And that’s a wrap for the 2019 Salem Film Fest!.
