"I want you to know that this film festival is in the midst of the Allegheny National Forest. We are the film festival in the wilderness of the PA WILDS. They call this area Kinzua Country and yes we're in the woods here. We're rustic, rural but global too. International businesses are here and so are a lot of trees, wild life and outdoor adventure. This is a great place to have fun outdoors, relax, or do business at a different pace. For 2015 thing are growing! We still have our 4 day film festival in August but it’s not just in Warren any more. We’re screening across 8 counties served by our Northern PA Film Office on days 1 & 2 and then capping things off on days 3 & 4 in Warren for more screenings and awards day Saturday. Now you can adventurously explore our eight counties while attending an international film festival. Take a road trip it’s all “Just Up The Road”. A drive in The Boonies could land you on some renowned roadways like routes 6, 62, 66 and ah well, route 666. All with glorious scenery and where animal life abounds. So a drive to film festival just became a true outdoor adventure. Just natures beauty alone can make you feel awakened. On the road you can see a lot, too much to list here. I will add this last thought. When you get to Warren for the last two days you’ll find multiple alternative and classic screening venues, including the 18th oldest active theatre in America, an outdoor store and a museum all showing plenty of films. The alluring nature… it doesn’t end either. In Warren you can be totally amazed in the virgin forest at Heart’s Content recreation area, walk our tree lined streets or floating down the Allegheny River or Conewango Creek; both meander through the city. The Conewango is Pennsylvania’s #1 River of 2015. Enjoy some coffee in the street cafes and we utilize the Wi-Fi floating around downtown. Plan on stopping in - We're Just Up The Road! The Boonies International Film Festival August 19th – 22th, 2015."
