Milford is nestled next to the Delaware River in the eastern part of the Poconos Mountains. Roughly 70 miles from New York City, it is a frequent destination for weekend getaways. Milford is home equally to professionals, weekenders, free-spirited artists, families, and those enjoying a slower pace of life. Hiking trails, waterfalls, quaint shops, historical buildings, and small-town living provide a charming backdrop for the annual Black Bear Film Festival.
The creative energy can be felt throughout the town, and the heartfelt commitment to the artistry of filmmaking is unshakable. The innovative subject matter, coupled with the unparalleled dedication from the team effort required to pull off such a stellar weekend event, speaks to the commitment to the arts and community.
