Film festival screeners may be restricted to certain categories, but will also be exposed to unrated material due to the nature of the submission process. Certain events may be restricted to 18+ or 21+, particularly where/when alcohol is served.

Light snacks/refreshments will be served. Special thanks to the Allegany County Library System. Whether you’d like to become a screener for the film festival, event staff or tech crew, or assist us with program development and community outreach — stop by any time between 1pm and 4pm to meet us and get involved!
