About the Festival
Come to the lovely historic town of Berkeley Springs West Virginia at the start of the beautiful fall colors of the Appalachian Mountains and enjoy a weekend of independent films. While you're here, enjoy one of the many spas, Bed and Breakfasts, hiking trails and restaurants frequently enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
Watch even more films than last year with our extended schedule. Film screenings take place Friday evening from 4 to 9 PM, Saturday 9:30 to 7 PM, and Sunday 9:30 to 4 PM. All screenings are at The Historic Star Theater with intimate seating capacity of 224. Enjoy popcorn with optional real butter during the screenings, and one of the local restaurants for lunch.
An Awards Ceremony will take place from 7 to 7:30 PM immediately after the screenings on Saturday evening. Come and show your support as filmmakers receive awards and prizes on stage at the Historic Star Theater (beer and wine available). Then stay for the after party and buffet Saturday evening right there in the Star Theater, where you can meet the filmmakers and they can network on upcoming projects. We'll be projecting photos of the weekend on the big screen as we party to your favorite movie soundtracks. (The Award Ceremony and After-Party are included in the cost of the All-Access Pass, but food and drinks are purchased separately.)
We will also be holding seminars on Saturday for filmmakers (or anyone with an All-Access Pass) to cover subjects such as Set Safety, How to get a job in the film industry, rules for SAG micro-budget films, Camera Settings and more! Click here for more information on Saturday seminars.
Tickets are less than half the price of most weekend film festivals, seating is limited and we expect to sell out fast, so get your tickets now by clicking the Buy Tickets Now link above.
