Phoenixville Film Festival is an annual event that takes place in the historic town of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. It’s about 30 minutes outside The City of Philadelphia, and it’s hosted at the famous Colonial Theatre. That’s right—the same theatre from The 1958 film The Blob starring Steve McQueen.
The festival is a celebration of independent film that includes film screenings, filmmakers panels and workshops, after-parties, and an awards ceremony.
In its first year ever, the festival is aimed at attracting independent film fans and filmmakers alike. You’ll get to spend four amazing days and nights exchanging ideas, making new contacts, and enjoying some compelling and interesting films encompassing a wide range of tastes.
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The mission of the non-profit Phoenixville Film Festival is to bring artists and audiences closer together through cinematic story telling. Our goal is to provide a platform for artists to advance their craft, engage with the community, and promote their work.
We believe that film is a powerful medium that can be used to tell stories that matter—stories that inspire us, teach us, make us laugh, or cry, and more. We also know how hard it can be for artists to get their work seen, heard and appreciated by those who might be interested in it. That’s why we’re dedicated to creating opportunities for filmmakers at all levels of experience.
We want you—the filmmaker and the screenwriter —to feel supported by our team and valued by our community. We hope that this festival will be an opportunity for you to connect with other filmmakers and audiences alike.
