We are excited to announce the first wave of programming for this year’s Cinedelphia Film Festival! The CFF will run from April 9 – 25 at PhilaMOCA and is loosely based around the theme of the “outsider”: untrained filmmakers, special interest archivists, and those who simply refuse to play by Hollywood’s rules. As always, it’s an eclectic and highly entertaining lineup of film programming that you won’t find anywhere else in the Delaware Valley.
Thursday, April 9, 7:30 PM @ PhilaMOCA
A special work in progress screening of locally produced documentary VIETNAM APPRECIATION DAY, a heartfelt and often hilarious look at Philadelphia-area Vietnam War reenactors. The film’s subjects and crew will be in attendance and there will be a live post-screening USO show!
Saturday, April 11, 7:30 PM @ PhilaMOCA
A 10th Anniversary Celebration of local documentary ROCK SCHOOL with director Don Argott and subjects in attendance plus post-screening live performances from School of Rock students and alumni!
