Home / Calendar / 3 Rivers Film Festival

The 3 Rivers Film Festival is a combined effort between Cinema Center and PBS39 to highlight and celebrate the visual arts - specifically local amateur talent working with film and video.

This event is free, with no submission fees and no entrace cost to the screenings. It is an official part of Fort Wayne's Three Rivers Festival.


Selected entries will be presented for public viewing as part of the 3 Rivers Film Festival event at the Cinema Center on Wednesday, July 15 at 8:00PM & 10:00PM.

The audience will vote for "Best in Show", with a cash prize for that submitter.
