This Year’s Chesapeake Film Festival Has Largest Attendance Ever
George Nilson, President of the Board of Trustees of the Chesapeake Film Festival, announced that “it is clear that we more than doubled last year’s ticket revenues and attendance. Four days and 48 films in three cities and five venues—that growth and the buzz during the festival has inspired us to double our effort to bring exciting film experience to the shore through the winter and spring, leading up to next year’s festival. We will not go into hibernation. We are profoundly grateful to our sponsors, advertisers, institutional partners and the thousands of film fans who attended. The excitement, increased audiences and revenue point to a bright future for the Chesapeake Film Festival and its programming. The growth of the festival greatly contributes to the Midshore cultural scene and its tourism/economic development.”
On the final night of the festival, an awards ceremony was held at the Avalon Theatre where thirteen films received awards for their accomplishments. See who won at this year’s festival.
