About the Festival
Welcome to the Chesapeake Film Festival! Founded in 2008, it is the mission of the Chesapeake Film Festival to entertain, enrich and inspire by bringing the finest in narrative, documentary and short film to the Chesapeake Bay community. The films we showcase are broadly focused to illuminate both the diversity and universality of the human condition. We believe that films can affect positive change, and through this medium, individuals and communities can gain a greater understanding of themselves and the world. The Chesapeake Film Festival serves to stimulate, educate and empower.
