Looks like the Philadelphia Cinema Alliance (aka TLA Video) will indeed be holding a Cinefest in April. Rumor has it that the festival will be one week in length and will be held exclusively at the Ritz East on both of the theater’s screens. It will be under the direction of Philadelphia Underground Film Festival‘s (aka the movies on the Piazza’s outdoor screen) Josh Goldbloom. The decision to go ahead with a Spring festival was made within the past day or two. Three months to create a festival fueled by aspirations and spite…go!
Philadelphia Film Society‘s long-term Membership Coordinator/backbone Jared Miller has reportedly lessened his involvement with the nonprofit formerly run by TLA. Apply for the full-time position here.
Thanks go out to Lucetta for the festival tip!
The Philadelphia Cinema Alliance have officially announced their upcoming 10 day festival running April 7-17, 2011. Their traditional Danger After Dark program is conspicuously absent from the programming list, which probably just means that it will incorporated into July’s QFest as it was to great success this past year. Get to work, Travis!
