Our Mission

The Centre Film Festival is a grass-roots organization founded to bring multigenerational stories to the screen and to create a platform for storytelling and dialogue. With the historic Rowland Theatre as a century-old touchstone, we bring filmmakers and films to the community that spark conversation. At the same time, in order to inspire new work, we aim to create workshop and masterclass opportunities at public events that will enable students (from junior high to undergrads) to engage with artists in the field and help them develop their own artistic visions. We believe Central Pennsylvania is rich with screen-worthy stories and the talent to make them.

This year we are back in the theatre! We are also offering some virtual screenings. We thank our generous sponsors for the support during these difficult times.
