A Message from the Chairman

Greetings from New Hope, Pennsylvania and thank you for visiting our blog! The New Hope Film Festival's directors and I are heading down the home stretch of our submissions season and our final decisions will be tough ones because we have so many outstanding films. We look forward to making this a lively blog in the future, so please settle in and post comments once things get rolling.

We plan to announce our slate of films in March. In the meantime, get excited for a world class festival and be well!

Welcome to the New Hope Film Festival 2010!

Emanating from a 1710 land grant, the New Hope area has a storied history. It began as a trading post and ferry terminal, and by the 1940s, New Hope's reputation in the arts, spurred by the multitudes of playwrights, directors and actors who traversed its bustling streets, became legendary.
