Founded by award-winning filmmakers and educators, the Allentown Film Festival is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that brings the Independent Film Festival experience to Eastern Pennsylvania. Each screening block includes films of various lengths followed by a Q&A panel discussion with filmmakers.
The second annual Allentown Film Festival will take place in April 2024 at the Civic Theatre of Allentown's two historic venues, the Allentown Art Museum, Miller Symphony Hall, The Downtown Allentown Market, and other iconic landmarks in the city. At the first Festival in April 2023, we screened over 150 films from around the world - half from local filmmakers. Click here for a list of 2023 Award Winners. We hope to see you at the 2024 Festival!
