Film Festivals

Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival

The inaugural Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival (JTIFF) features 86 films from 16 countries, six world premieres, four North American premieres and 26 Pennsylvania premieres. Channeling the rebellious spirit of the Molly Maguires, JTIFF challenged the boldest, most defiant filmmakers to present their work, shatter convention and incite spirited debate. The festival credo is “eyes and minds wide open,” and they mean it!
