The Media Film Festival Committee is a group of volunteers who spend the year soliciting, screening and scoring the ever increasing number of films we receive from around the world. By presenting a variety of short films – narrative, documentary, animation and experimental – the goal is to build a greater appreciation of artists and filmmakers within our community and beyond.

There is something unique about going to the movies. We come together in a darkened theater to feel the thrill of emotion and adventure that we have little access to in our normal lives. Independent films from a diverse group of filmmakers and cultures, like those we select for the Media Film Festival, remind us that whether we are watching an animated film from Iran or a comedy made in here in Delaware County, we share common ground as human beings.

“We are excited to be offering independent filmmakers the opportunity to have their work seen on the big screen at an iconic theater,”
Ryan Coughlin of the Media Arts Council.
