Rehoboth Beach Film Society
One night, in the fall of 1997, a group of five Rehoboth Beach film fans discussed the possibility of showing independent films in local restaurants. They decided to advertise a meeting for film buffs to see if others in the community were interested in such a concept. More than 30 people showed up and watched a film about small-town residents with a big dream. The idea of creating the Rehoboth Beach Film Society was conceived that night. The actual birth was a year later with the first annual Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival taking place for three days in November of 1998. Six years later, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society has developed into a thriving cultural resource in southern Delaware. The 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization’s mission is to create understanding and appreciation of film as an art form.
