ReadingFilmFEST is thrilled to present its 6th annual independent film festival.

Located in Reading, PA, the festival will feature a hybrid approach to screening films by offering ticket holders the option of participating virtually or in-person at the First Energy Baseball Stadium. The festival will include films from independent filmmakers from around the world, including student films, shorts, documentaries and feature films. Panel discussions, and filmmaker Q&As will be available both online and in-person.

This year’s festival includes a special focus on female and minority filmmakers. We will be exploring the power of film in addressing social inequality through the selection of films, and a special panel discussion at the festival.

ReadingFilmFEST was created by filmmakers for filmmakers and film lovers. We understand the importance of festivals in creating opportunities for filmmakers to meet their audiences, network with other professionals and promote their films. By supporting filmmakers, we’ve learned that our audience benefits by being able to engage in truly meaningful dialogue with the creators of film.

ReadingFilmFEST welcomes filmmakers from the Mid-Atlantic region and around the world!  Last year’s visiting filmmakers gave us rave reviews for film quality, hospitality and locations! Whether or not you have a film to our festival, we encourage you to hang out in Reading and see what all the fuss is about!

We’re a small city.  We get struggle. We appreciate the big efforts made by small filmmakers.
