Centre Film Festival To Return Starting November 1

Didn’t make last lear’s virtual film debuts? Centre Film Festival is set to return with its third-annual festival from November 1 to November 7. In-person, virtual, and hybrid watch options will showcase more than 80 documentaries, short films, and feature films.

The in-person viewings will take place at the Rowland Theatre in Philipsburg, the Mishler Theatre in Altoona, and on the University Park campus.

Centre Film will use Eventive as its virtual watch option. Film buffs can attend fully virtual, entirely in-person, or a mix of both.

The lineup of films includes a plethora of genres. Everywhere between sports, music, comedy, parenting, restorative justice, youth activism, and more national and international award-winning films are offered throughout the entire event.

For students, an all-access pass for the event is free. Students are required to upload a photo of their student ID to claim this pass.

For non-students, a pass for the entire festival, whether virtual, hybrid, or in-person, is $50. You are also given the option to purchase individual tickets if you cannot watch or attend all documentaries.

As well as attending the event, three “special industry workshops” are offered with two Penn State alumni, Patrick Fabian and Michael Craven, and State College native Joshua Leonard.

Centre Film recognizes November as National Native American Heritage Month. The festival will hold a special in-person viewing of “Home From School: The Children of Carlisle.” As stated, “The documentary follows a delegation of Northern Arapaho tribal members as they travel from Wyoming to Pennsylvania to retrieve the remains of three children who died at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in the 1880s.”

To purchase a student or non-student pass for the film festival, head online.
