What is the Chesapeake Film Festival?

In 2023 our LIVE Festival events will premiere on Saturday, September 30 at the historic Avalon Theatre with a second LIVE day at the Ebenezer Theater on Sunday, October 1 in downtown Easton. A 7-day Virtual Festival will follow from Monday, October 2 through Sunday, October 8. Featured will be a variety of shorts and features, including dramas, comedies, student work, environmental films and social issues. Filmmakers will be present and lead intimate discussions about their films.

Why should you sponsor the Festival?

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.
