The Black Bear Film Fest / A weekend-long celebration of arts and independent cinema

The Black Bear Film Fest takes place annually, the weekend after Columbus Day, in the heart of Historic Milford, PA.

The Film Fest relies upon its sponsors, volunteers and attendees to maintain its mission of supporting innovative and independent films, artistic expression, education, diversity, and cultural enhancement, in addition to participating in the expanding economic development in the tri-state area.

The Historic Milford Theatre, located at 114 E. Catharine St. in Milford, PA, will host the screenings of this year’s feature films. The Film Salon, held in the Pike County Public Library’s Community Room, is a free, educational event featuring film selections, guest speakers, and Q&A sessions with the filmmakers.
