Festival Screening Venues

Each year the festival looks at different venues to screen. We have screened films in the open air, IMAX Theater, the Ritz, the side of buildings, a 19th Century church, comedy clubs, basements, and many more! We strive to match films with their natural screening venue and this takes us to many walks of the city and life. In general, we are listening to you the filmmaker and the viewer and providing a unique experience.

This year we are focusing on the discussion and the making of the film. Our home base is Plays & Players theater in one of the hearts of Philadelphia, Rittenhouse Square. This is not just about cinematic quality so much as it is about the entire film making experience. We will focus efforts on Q&A, events, and discussions. Music will follow us wherever we go. Perhaps you can say we’re getting back to our roots.
