The Stony Brook Film Festival, produced by Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University, presents a program of new, independent films every summer since 1996. Features and short films from the U.S. and around the world are screened over ten days at Staller Center, which has been the venue since the Festival’s beginning. The festival is the brain child of the Staller Center's current Director Alan Inkles. The festival continues to gain momentum and has gathered a faithful following. The 2009 festival was expected to draw a crowd of over 15,000 people.
The 2009 Festival ran from July 23 to Aug 1st, 2009 showing thirty-seven films in total.

Complementing the many U.S. indies, the 2009 Festival screened films from dozens of countries including Canada, Israel, China, Germany, Palestine, Spain, and Japan.
