Launched in January 2011, Cinedelphia.com is the online center of Philadelphia’s repertory film and festival communities.  We also review current films, interview interesting film-related folks, give away tickets to worthwhile films, and cover all of the oft-ignored corners of local film exhibition.

Cinedelphia programs and sponsors a variety of year-round film screenings including the Cinedelphia Film Festival and the Unknown Japan series.

Cinedelphia has an open submission policy.  If you are interested in reviewing films, have an idea for an article, are seeking an internship, or simply want to lend a hand here or there then let us know.
