Welcome to the Chesapeake Film Festival!

This year we’re coming your way with an exciting HYBRID FESTIVAL—LIVE and VIRTUAL. We’ve got something for everyone!

Friday evening begins with a VIP reception for sponsors, donors and filmmakers followed by screenings and discussions of environmental films, including the World Premiere of a new film by local favorites Tom Horton, Dave Harp and Sandy Cannon-Brown.

Saturday’s films feature a World Premiere short called Tyndall Typewriters and two audience-pleasing narrative newcomers—Academy Award-winning MINARI and TESLA.

Admission to Friday’s evening of environmental films and discussions is $25. Admission to Friday’s environmental films and VIP reception is $125 per person. Admission for Saturday’s films is $15 each. All films will be screened at the Avalon Theatre (40 East Dover St, Easton, MD). The VIP Reception will be held in the courtyard at the Eastern Shore Conservation Center (114 South Washington St., Easton, MD).

Please know you will be required to show proof of vaccinations for CoVid in order to attend the live show.
