Annual Moviate Underground Film Festival at Artsfest!
SCREENINGS ARE FREE FOR ALL AUDIENCES TO ATTEND, CREATING AN ATMOSPHERE UNLIKE MANY OTHER FILM FESTIVALS!
Moviate Underground at Artsfest encompasses a 3-day film festival on the banks of the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, PA along-side area artisans and craftsmen. We have a wide range of viewership and look for anything from spotlight animation and pixelvision films to quality narratives and comedies to animation and kids films to documentaries.
Above all, we love anything super 8 or 16mm, underground, independent, avant-garde, personal, experimental, or any other form of creative filmmaking that challenges the masses and the stereotypical 'Hollywood' aesthetic. We show film and video creations made as a form of art, not as a means of making a profit at the expense of our culture.

"1969. Man lands on the moon. Half a million strong at Woodstock. Sesame Street makes its debut…. and Led Zeppelin perform in the gym of the Wheaton Youth Center on Georgia Avenue in front of 50 confused teenagers. Or did they? Filmmaker Jeff Krulik offers a screening of his take on an enduring local legend, on the very night this concert was alleged to have taken place, January 20, 1969, during the first Presidential Inauguration of Richard Nixon."
