April 22-25 2021

We are proud to announce the Fourth Annual Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival (JTIFF) during April 22-25 at the beautiful Mauch Chunk Opera House in historic Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.
The Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival channels the rebellious spirit of the Molly Maguires, welcoming the boldest, most defiant filmmakers to present their work, shatter convention and incite spirited debate.  Our credo is “eyes and minds wide open” and we mean it.  JTIFF cares deeply about diversity and strives to give the under-represented filmmaker a chance.  So we make a concerted effort to promote films by women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community and student filmmakers
Once again, we'll be welcoming films of every genre and budget level, especially work by maverick filmmakers who strive to break boundaries with no fear of controversy.  In short, this ain't your Daddy's film festival.  Genres include drama, documentary, comedy, horror, sci-fi, experimental, animation and LGBTQ subject.
