West Chester Film Festival


Small Town, Big Film

The historic town of Chester County holds its 8th annual international short film festival. This film festival is a big deal because there is no film theater located in the town. It’s a treat for this community to go to see a movie.

“The mission of the West Chester Film Festival is to Entertain, Enlighten and Educate the public through the presentation of global independent and innovative short film and interactive workshops,” according to the website.

Last year, participants from New York, Texas, Utah and Sweden won prizes in categories such as, but not limited to: Best Drama, Best Animated Film and Best Experimental/Art Film.

Each independent filmmaker has 30 minutes to show their short film and will be judged by industry professionals based on content, innovation and technical execution. Some 3,000 film-lovers are expected in attendance this year. Additional information such as times and movie titles can be found on the website. For the complete schedule click here.
