Black Bear Film Festival’s mission is “to entertain, educate, inspire and celebrate our community with great film events.”
A 501(c)3 arts organization, we serve the beautiful tri-state region of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and aspire to:
*find and feature exceptional films that will entertain and delight the varied public.
*celebrate the art and craft of film-making with stimulating regional events.
*partner with schools to inspire students to become filmmakers and aficionados of film.
*build sound, mutually beneficial partnerships with local businesses.
*contribute vitality to our local arts culture and economies.
The annual Black Bear Film Festival event – first established in 2000 – takes place over the third weekend of October at the historic Milford Theater, in the heart of “quaint and cool” Milford, PA.
- The Opening Night Gala and Movie includes a red carpet entrance, tapas, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, entertainment and a specially chosen film.
- The Main Stage presents feature-length independent films and celebrity guests throughout the weekend.
- The Film Salon spotlights comedy, dramatic and documentary short films, and includes workshops in film craft, plus presentations by established and budding filmmakers, renowned and local artists, and film professionals.
As a not-for-profit organization, we depend upon – and VASTLY appreciate – the participation and generous contributions of our filmmakers, film-goers, donors, sponsors, advertisers, volunteers and participating artists. Black Bear Film Festival could not exist without you!
