The Bucks County Performing Arts Center was founded in 1978 by Mary Borkovitz, a former music teacher. Their first venue was the Community Room of the Lower Makefield Township Building. In 1985, the organization was recognized by the National Recreation and Park Association and was honored with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council Dorothy Mullen Arts & Humanities Award for a program that exemplified outstanding efforts in the arts among park and recreation departments. Twenty nine years later, the organization has grown in numerous directions. For more information visit http://www.bcpac.org/.

Black Bear’s Film Festival’s mission is steadfast and compelling: we are committed to producing a film festival program that embraces the essence of film making, is pure in spirit and thought-provoking in content. We are in support of innovative and independent films, artistic expression, education, diversity, and cultural enhancement. We strive to provide an engaging and exciting community experience for film makers to debut their films, as well as a fun film festival experience for our attendees.

In addition to the engaging movies, the opening night gala is an elegant kickoff to a weekend that is sure to be a smash hit for all. Free events and films are offered in addition to the ticketed main features, and the reach of films we screen is further nurtured through those who travel in just for the event. The creative energy can be felt throughout the town and the heartfelt commitment to the artistry of film making is unshakable. The innovative subject matter, coupled with the unparalleled dedication from the team effort required to pull off such a stellar weekend event, is noteworthy and speaks to their commitment to the arts and community.
