Gleaners Film Festival is a non-profit event that exhibits and celebrates marginal cinematic forms, subjects, and communities. Situated in the city of Lancaster, PA at Franklin & Marshall College, the festival brings together independent local, national, and international work that is often overlooked by dominant industry and mainstream cultural platforms. 

         Gleaners Film Festival, in partnership with the public School District of Lancaster, will host a summer documentary workshop between McCaskey High School and Franklin & Marshall College film students. The creative work that emerges from these sessions will be presented in a special Lancaster-based program during the festival.

         Gleaners Film Festival is made possible by generous support from a range of institutions in the Lancaster community:  the Center for Sustained Engagement with Lancaster, the F&M Summer Scholars Program, the Department of Art, Art History, and Film, the Phillips Museum of Art, Zoetropolis Cinema Stillhouse, and the School District of Lancaster.
