About the Festival
The mission of the West Chester Film Festival is to Entertain, Enlighten and Educate the public through the presentation of global independent and innovative short film and interactive workshops by hosting an annual International Short Film Festival. Our short term goal is to present a self-sustaining annual film festival. Our dream and long-term goal is to permanently house the Festival in a Performing Arts Center or Theater in the Borough of West Chester, presenting independent film and giving a voice to up and coming artists. The West Chester Film Festival is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
Join us for a weekend every April for the annual West Chester Film Festival. We will screen short films, up to 30 minutes in length, submitted by independent filmmakers from around the world. Submissions are juried by a panel of industry professionals and winners chosen according to content, innovation and technical execution. We anticipate attendance of 3,000 film lovers this year.
