The Litchfield Hills Film Festival was an American film festival that was founded in 2006 as the Kent Film Festival by Frank and Patrice Galterio. Originally held in Kent, CT, the festival expanded and moved to New Milford, CT in 2011 and Torrington, CT in 2012. The festival screens feature length, short, and documentary films and considers both national and international submissions.

It was a grass roots organization dedicated to the development and education of artists with an independent vision and to create a platform for filmmakers to reach the broadest possible audience for their work.

The 2011 Litchfield Hills Film Festival featured 125 films, including 22 documentary films, 14 feature films and 89 short films which have all been a staple of the festival since its inception 6 years ago. In 2011, the festival played host to films from over 14 countries and had more than 55 filmmakers in attendance. 

Aside from the screenings, the festival also celebrated film education – often hosting Q&A sessions with inspirational filmmakers where anyone could submit a question to ask them. 

So overall we miss this little film festival and wish it was still around!
