10th Annual West Chester Film Festival (2014): Details and Venues

By -

This weekend kicks off the 10th Annual West Chester Film Festival in downtown West Chester!  Last year I was given he opportunity to attend the West Chester Film Festival and was blown away by some of the talent showcased.  In fact, during the young directors portion, there was a Lego film and I was hysterical the entire time.  I thought “this is genius! why isn’t there a movie like this in the theaters?” What came out this year?  The Lego Movie!  And it was amazing, right!?  Anyway, I am just pointing out that I was right and that these films aren’t going to bore you.  This is an inexpensive day (or weekend) at the movies and you are supporting raw talent 🙂  There are also some amazing parties and networking events to attend!

The weekend is slated to be a bit cloudy with a chance of showers.  In my opinion, that is the perfect weather for walking around town and stopping in to enjoy some films and getting to know some talented people.  Come on out and support the Arts!
