Independent Film Night at the Newtown Theatre features short movies and documentaries in the oldest operating movie houses in the United States. Filmmakers have the chance to introduce themselves and their work to attendees, who come from Bucks County, PA and beyond for these free events.
Independent Film Night at the Newtown Theatre is open to everyone, from students to professionals. Special consideration is given to filmmakers in the Philadelphia region.
Maximum running time for submissions must be 20 minutes. Films must be in English or include English subtitles.
Experimental films (i.e., films that lack a clear narrative arc, characters, and standard dialogue) are not encouraged. However, we watch everything submitted and we're open to a wide variety of genres and topics.
Profanity is acceptable as long as it's used purposefully.
Please submit only one film per Independent Film Night. We look forward to seeing your best work!
