The 6th Annual Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival (JTIFF) will take place from April 20th to April 23rd, 2023 as a live, in-person four day event at the Mauch Chunk Opera House in historic Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.
JTIFF, embraces the rebellious spirit of the Molly Maguires, and screens bold and unconventional films that challenge conventions and spark spirited debates. Their motto is “eyes and minds wide open” and they take it to heart.
Last year, JTIFF screened 90 films from around the world, including dozens of world premieres and many US and Pennsylvania premieres, covering a wide range of styles and subjects from gritty underground and experimental works to polished traditional narratives.
This year they will be adding even more live music to their 4-day event as they continue their partnership with Great Circles, one of the most sought-after music collectives in Philadelphia!
And, on Saturday night, they host their immensely popular GRINDHOUSE program, featuring the bloodiest and most disturbing films that push the limits and rip through boundaries. *Please note that no one under 18 will be admitted.
