The festival will once again span film genres to include animation, comedy, documentary, drama, and experimental/art selections to entertain, provoke and stimulate regional audiences.

Located in the historic town of West Chester in the heart of Chester County, Pennsylvania, the film festival is forty minutes from Philadelphia and thirty minutes from Wilmington, Delaware. Submissions will be juried by a panel of industry professionals and selected based on content, innovation and technical execution. The three day event will include film screenings throughout the downtown area, special film blocks for children and teens, interactive workshops, and social events. The West Chester Film Festival is a premier cultural arts event in the Philadelphia region. Come join us and help us celebrate our 9th year! Welcome to West Chester: Small Town, Big Film!!

    to help me get my foot in the local film scene?

    Best Regards

  2. Hi Rodger,
    Make sure to come out to the festival – there are always filmmakers present. You may also try LinkedIn Groups – Philly Film & Video Industry Network (PFVI) comes to mind, or Stage 32 for networking. Hope to see you in April!
