Black Bear Film Festival 2018

October in Milford is not only beautiful for its breathtaking fall foliage of the Delaware Upper River Valley forests but also known to movie buffs for its big-screen delights of the Black Bear Film Festival. This year’s Festival takes place October 19-21, 2018 in Milford, PA.

Now in its impressive 19th year, the Black Bear Film Festival invariably brings some remarkable features, documentaries, and shorts to Milford, making in the process one of the culture-and-entertainment highpoints of the year. This year’s Film Icon Guest is Jane Alexander, an American author, actress, and former director of the
National Endowment for the Arts.  She is a Tony Award winner and two-time Emmy Award winner.

Main Stage Offerings at the Milford Theatre

The festival’s Main Stage is the historic Milford Theatre: a beautiful use of this venerable building, which opened in the second decade of the 20th century as a silent-movie cinema. This year’s Main Stage offerings, as is typical for the Black Bear Film Festival, cover some fascinating territory, thematically and stylistically.
