About the Festival
The New Hope Film Festival was founded by D. F. Whipple, an author screenwriter, and long-time resident of the New Hope, Bucks County area. Whipple formed the New Hope Film Festival with a group of artists who shared his passion for discovering and nurturing independent filmmakers, especially those who’ve been overlooked by established festivals. This includes international films, which the Festival is eager to attract.
What Makes the Festival Different
Every film submitted will be watched with a keen perspective on quality and artistic expression. Our artistic standards are extremely high and neither budget nor name recognition will be a determining factor—the art must shine through. The best films will be selected, period.
Over the years, New Hope has attracted and been home to many talented producers, screenwriters, actors, playwrights, and performance art enthusiasts. Home of the Bucks County Playhouse, where actors such as John Travolta, George C. Scott, Robert Redford, Helen Hayes, Andrea McArdle and Colleen Dewhurst have graced the stage, the village is centrally located less than an hour from Philadelphia and an hour and a half from New York.
