About the Festival
New Hope Film Festival was the brainchild of D. F. Whipple, an author, screenwriter, and long-time resident of the New Hope, Bucks County area. Whipple formed New Hope Film Festival with a group of artists who shared his passion for discovering and nurturing independent filmmakers, especially those who’ve been overlooked by established festivals. This includes international films, which the Festival is eager to attract.
