Reigniting the rich history of cinema in downtown New Bedford! Cinema New Bedford presents films that spark conversations, “big feelings,” and new perspectives. Our mission is to help create and sustain a robust cinephile community in New Bedford, promote the art of cinema, and build community through collective engagement that brings joy, sorrow, and everything in between.
For a quarter of a century, the fan favorite festival has gathered world-class contemporary singer/songwriters, traditional Americana, the best in blues, classic Celtic and, of course, folk to the Southcoast. Whether you come for the fantastic music or the free festivities surrounding the festival, it’s a weekend of fun for everyone.
