HARD-TO-GET INFO • An event by this name may exist, but we have not been able to find even basic information about it. The listing remains available for your reference.



The mission of the Rehoboth Beach Film Society is to promote cinematic arts and provide education and cultural enrichment for our community. The Film Society manages a Cinema Arts Theater in which a broad scope of film programs are offered as well as the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival.


The Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival is a multi-day event in a popular resort town on southern Delaware's Atlantic coast. The Festival began in 1998 and has since grown to a thriving cultural resource in the mid-Atlantic region. The festival screens American and international features, shorts, and documentaries.

The Film Society's Cinema Arts Theater is the home for this annual event as well as two other venues. In addition to Delaware residents, this Festival has become an important cultural destination for film enthusiasts from Maryland, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, New York, and beyond.
