First Film Festival is a Hit

The inaugural Neumann Inspires Film Festival featured Brad Ingelsby, a slew of original films by aspiring filmmakers, and a screening of Heart of Camden, a documentary celebrating the life and work of Fr. Michael Doyle.

Ingelsby wrote and produced Mare of Easttown, the Emmy Award-winning HBO series that is set in Delaware County. As the featured speaker at the festival, he was interviewed by Sara McDermott Jain, answered questions from the audience, and presented awards to winning filmmakers at the end of the evening. Jain is the festival director, a screenwriter, and an adjunct professor at Neumann. Old Young by Emma Baiada took home the Best of Fest prize.
