The Filmmakers' Film Festival

Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals

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 festival was the only known film festival held in a baseball stadium! We’re excited to return once again to our wonderful theater venues, GoggleWorks Center for the Arts Boscov Theater and Reading Movies 11 & IMAX Theater. 

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