All events are free. See official website for location details.

Pottstown In Focus Short Film Festival is an event soliciting short film submissions from entrants across the country and around the world. Entries must be 30 minutes or less. Top prize will be awarded to the entry which places Pottstown at the center of the composition, highlighting Pottstown as a setting or subject-Pottstown, Pennsylvania, a town with renewed focus.

The festival takes place over three days:

Thursday, Nov. 9, 5-7 pm The festival kicks off at Montgomery County Community College's Pottstown University Center with select screenings accompanied by live jazz, Sly Fox Beer, cocktails and of course popcorn!

Friday Nov. 10, 6-8 pm: The festival moves to the Hill School with a special screening of last year's winning films "The Prodigy" and "Pine Tree". Stick around for a Q&A with the film's creators-Adam Evans, David Traverso and Maxwell Scott.
