Johnstown Film Festival

Heritage Discovery Center

After a 2-year hiatus, the Johnstown Film Festival is back! See www.johnstownfilmfest.org for complete details.

The festival is intended to promote the work of filmmakers and artists from Johnstown (and the surrounding region), and to facilitate a filmmaking community. It was produced from 2007-2015, and we are delighted to bring it back in 2018.

This year, we are partnering with Penn Highlands Community College, which will produce an educational event that is student-oriented, including workshops and screening of student work:  Act I – A Day at the Film Studio.

The competitive portion of the festival will be called Act II – Opening Night, and is open to films 30 minutes and under that have a tangible connection to Johnstown (in theme, location, or personnel).
