The Black Bear Film Festival takes place annually during and extended third weekend of October in the heart of Historic Milford, PA.
Periodic film screenings, workshops and special events complement the October festival throughout the year in venues throughout the PA/NY/NJ tri-state region.
Our mission is to promote independent films and filmmakers, the arts, education and diversity, and to honor the legacy of Milford and other tri-state communities as the birthplace of conservation and for the important roles our communities played as early American film making colonies.
- The Mainstage presents feature-length independent films and guest celebrities.
- The Opening Night Gala and Movie includes cocktails, dinner, entertainment and a film specially selected for opening night.
- The Film Salon during the festival weekend and our periodic events throughout the season spotlight comedy, dramatic, and documentary short films, film workshops, and presentations featuring established, budding and student filmmakers, renowned and local artists, and film professionals in exciting, informative and interactive events.
