Oscar Winners Among The West Chester Film Festival Official Selections
The seventh annual short film festival brings a weekend of award-winning films from all over the world to West Chester, PA, including the Academy Award winning "God of Love," directed by Luke Matheny.
Carol Jean Quigley, who has been with the festival since it began, reflects the energy and excitement that flows during the festival weekend. "Our festival gives visiting film makers a warm and appreciative audience" says Quigley. “With no movie theater in downtown West Chester, the West Chester Film Festival is an opportunity to see unique and wonderful independent short films that would not otherwise come to this area.”
In addition to “God of Love,” directed by Luke Matheny, films being screened include the Oscar nominated “The Confession,”
The West Chester Film Festival also offers free workshops on animation, scriptwriting and film making that are open to the public.
Quigley says, "The mission of the West Chester Film Festival is to entertain, enlighten and educate. And if you love film, the Festival is one of the best entertainment values in the region!"
