An Entire Weekend of Indie Films
Every October, the Black Bear Film Festival brings innovative and thought-provoking films to the picturesque town of Milford. The festival features a lineup of independent film screenings, salons, workshops, and other cultural events. The weekend also includes an opening night gala.
The Black Bear Film Festival is engaging and exciting, not only for the audience, but also for the film makers who get to debut their work. For over 20 years, locals and visitors alike have come together to celebrate the arts.
One of the traditions of the Black Bear Film Festival is the Artful Bears. Artists of all ages and skill levels decorate the bears and create one-of-a-kind artwork. The bears are displayed around town in the weeks leading up to the festival.
The Black Bear Film Festival is a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading joy and building community through film. The event is run by volunteers and sustained by members, sponsors, advertisers, and donors. Reach out to learn how you can contribute.
