New Hope Film Festival, Ltd., 6542-A Lower York Rd., #219, New Hope, PA 18938

June 18, 2021 Dear Patron, Welcome to the New Hope Film Festival! We are delighted to announce the arrival of our 12th annual event after a challenging year. Our international film festival, despite its place in a small, quaint town alongside the Delaware River in historic Bucks County, is considered a beacon of hope by many, and we worked tirelessly to make sure this event took place as planned and on schedule. For the first time, you can watch films from the comfort of your home or office through our Virtual Cineplex, but we are rare in the festival world this year by also offering a full lineup of live, physical screenings. Nothing compares with the experience of watching a world premiere in a real theater and participating in an in-person Q&A. We are taking precautions to keep everyone safe, including limiting our ticket sales. This is a golden opportunity to gather in a physical space with intellectually curious people who care about the world around them, and we hope you will seize the moment. Stay safe, D. F. Whipple President and Founder New Hope Film Festival

BETTER Begins Here.

Every hospital’s ultimate goal is to make you better. But that’s not what sets us apart. Doylestown’s difference is that we’re simply better at it. Compared to big city hospitals, our boutique-style, patient-centered approach can’t be beaten. When combined with our quality, it’s the best of both worlds. And it’s where better begins.

Better Begins Here.

2021 Posted Notice at the New Hope Arts Center

Welcome! About COVID-19 Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location, and the risk is heightened in an enclosed, crowded space such as this theater. Despite our audience size limitation, hand sanitizer stations and other precautions taken by us, we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that people get fully vaccinated. Our recommendation is to either 1) get vaccinated and come experience the live, inperson festival or 2) choose to avoid the vaccine in consultation with your doctor and not attend the in-person event. You can still watch our virtual shows from anywhere. If you are unvaccinated and still choose to enter the theater, we require that you wear a face mask at all times to help mitigate the risk of spreading COVID to others.

For more information visit www.cdc.gov

How to Get Tickets Due to our current need to limit audience sizes to 70% of theater capacity, we are being unusually careful about counting attendees for each show. The best way we can achieve this goal is to manage all ticket sales through our online ticketing platform. Please be sure to purchase tickets in advance.

To get tickets, view the schedule and peruse the lineup, visit the Tickets page at www.newhopefilmfestival.com or navigate to www.goelevent.com on your smart phone or tablet and enter the name of the show you want to see in the “Search by Organizer” search field. You can always ask one of our courteous staff members for assistance at the box office while films are playing or email us for assistance at inquiries@newhopefilmfestival.com. Please allow 24-36 hours for an email response during the event.

Please note that we have limited capacity to process ticket transactions at the door. We can process credit card transactions directly through our payment processing tools, but cash does not allow us to keep online track of attendee lists. Therefore, we request that you purchase last minute tickets at this venue in one of two ways:

1) Visit goelevent.com via your smart phone or tablet

2) Have a credit card ready at the box office ticket counter
