  • A small but very professionally run festival. My home town. Will submit every year.

    Thanks, guys!

  • We were so happy that our film was able to reach a larger audience through this festival due to the limitations of the COVID outbreak. We hope that people enjoyed our film and this festival and continue to support indie films and filmmakers no matter what the time and situation is!

    It was a fantastic evening (already night our side in a fact). Great contact with the organizers and conversations with the real film enthusiasts. An amazing experience, we highly recommend it, and we're happy to receive the Award!

    A Festival with a TON of heart. It was very well organized by Chris P. and the rest of the friendly staff. I was honored to have my film screened at the Festival and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience!

    As Delco natives we were really excited to be a part of this year’s festival, and it did not disappoint. The venue, though tucked away, was great: good sound and picture quality and a lively audience. The selected films really ran the gamut from low-budget but charming narratives to more well-funded documentaries. It was a great night!
