ICAN/HANNA International Independent Film Festival is a filmmaking competition hosted in the beautiful Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (Dauphin County, PA)

Hanna is short for Susquehanna the local river which boast some of the most beautiful waterway/mountain sceneries on the eastern seaboard. A filmmaker paradise with historic architecture, open rural landscapes, and dynamic cinema scenery.

We are inviting our global community of friends to join us for a weekend of festivities hosted by our Production Company as a formal introduction and invitation of inclusion into our film creator community.

We intend to debut our new streaming platform and display the great works submitted by our creative community. We will provide 3 full days of activities including workshops, panels, and networking events.

This will be a great opportunity to meet emerging talent for your productions and projects. Calling all creatives to participate and offer your suggestions to better serve the community as a whole.

Membership includes a massive resource base of opportunities and built-in industry relationships.
