We started an annual film festival in April of 1998 as we celebrated our first full year of showing avant-garde and independent film in Harrisburg. We merged it a year later to coincide with the annual Harrisburg Artsfest which takes place over Memorial Day weekend. It's a great tradition of independent cinema with wonderful free events throughout the weekend. We generally open a call for submissions around December and make selections by the end of April. Check out our archive to see what films we have shown and what filmmakers attended the past festivals.
