What is the Chesapeake Film Festival?
The Chesapeake Film Festival October 1- 4 celebrates its 13th year with a VIRTUAL festival of four days of films and live events with filmmakers.
Why should you sponsor the Festival?
The Chesapeake Film Festival’s commitment to bringing outstanding independent films to the people of the Chesapeake Bay area remains a priority despite the challenges of 2020. Because of the pandemic, CFF has had to figure out an alternate means of delivering those films to you. Our answer is a virtual festival, which extends our potential audience far beyond the physical boundaries of the Eastern Shore.
Inclusivity is our hallmark by uniting our audience in a celebration of cinematic achievement. During times of chaos and uncertainty unity is strength. When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. Our mission is celebrating film by strengthening our community.
The mission of the Chesapeake Film Festival is to entertain, inspire and educate by bringing the finest in narrative, documentary, short film, environmental film and animation to the greater community. The films we showcase illuminate both the diversity and universality of humankind and the environment. We believe films can affect positive change, and through this medium, individuals and communities can gain a greater understanding of themselves and the world.
