2022 Berkeley Springs Film Festival
at The Historic Star Theater
September 30 at 3:30 PM through October 2 at 6:00 PM
This year is even bigger and better than last year! Of the 58 films submitted this year, 38 films were selected by our judges for their entertainment value to be screened over 3 days. Starting with 7 films on Foreign Film Friday including a great documentary about the Dalai Lama’s sister’s challenge to educate over 40,000 children and ending with a zombie movie Friday night. Saturday includes mostly local films made within 50 miles of Berkeley Springs; expanded filmmaker seminars this year open to everyone with an all-access pass; and Awards Ceremony followed by the After Party where you can meet and socialize with the filmmakers themselves. Sunday winds up with over 8 hours of films including some beautifully animated films and student films.
Over 20 independent filmmakers plan to attend and we are honored to have as our Keynote Speaker a First Assistant Director that worked on numerous Hollywood blockbusters to share how to get a job on a major motion picture set.
Due to limited seating and venues we are only selling all-access passes which can be purchased for $55 via our website. That’s less than half the price of most film festivals! The primary focus of our festival is to support struggling independent filmmakers, but we selected films based on their entertainment value. We have no paid staff and are all volunteers, so come out and support the arts!
Sponsorship opportunities are only available a few more days until Monday September 19 which include a full page ad in our official program guide to be printed for each attendee and ad displayed on the big screen between each film block for $400. Thank you for your support!
A preliminary program guide listing all the films, events and times can be downloaded from the 2022 Festival page of our website: www.BSFilmFestival.com
