    Great festival for local filmmakers to screen movies for friends and beach locals. Very friendly and supportive atmosphere.

  • The Rehoboth Beach Regional Showcase is an excellent vantage point for young and upcoming filmmakers to get the big screen treatment. The staff were all very nice and helpful and the QnA session was enlightening. Definitely planning on attending next year.
