The Edwin Barbey Charitable Trust Presents the 8th Annual ReadingFilmFEST, “The Filmmakers Film Festival”, happening October 27-30 at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, Eunice and Albert Boscov Theatre and Reading Movies 11 & IMAX® Theater. This year’s festival includes over 65 independent and student films, LUNAFEST® (a traveling festival featuring films by and about women supported by Reading AAUW), a presentation of Rocky Horror Picture Show with a live shadow-cast, special programs at Alvernia and Penn State Berks, and the return of Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony® nominee Lynn Nottage and Emmy® winner Tony Gerber with a screening of the documentary THIS IS READING, and a discussion of the impact of the arts on community development.
Says ReadingFilm Office Executive Director Cammie Harris, “This year’s festival promises to be our best yet! We’re thrilled to bring this exciting line-up of films and events to Reading!”
Harris has continued to grow the ReadingFilm Office as an economic driver of the Greater Reading community. “Regions that have strong film offices reap huge benefits in terms of jobs, economic impact on small businesses, and quality of life for their communities. Cities like Albuquerque, NM, and Wilmington, NC have revitalized their economies with an investment in film production. State tax credits, unique locations, and production support are big draws for film and television production companies. And, since the pandemic, there is a backlog of films looking for studio space and a friendly place to film. We want Greater Reading to be that place!”
About ReadingFilm Office
ReadingFilm Office was created in 2016 by Santo D. Marabella, screenwriter Letty Hummel, and the late actor Michael Constantine to attract film production to the region, provide support to local and visiting filmmakers, and build the local production community through educational, networking, and promotional events. “Many people don’t realize that Berks County has a significant film production community, but we do. We know that the architecture of Reading and the beauty of our wild spaces is a draw for filmmakers who visit,” says Co-Founder Tracy Schott, who has been producing projects in the region for over 20 years.
