I am thrilled to announce, in one month’s time the premiere of the 1st One-Night-Only Philadelphia Film Festival. This singular event will showcase nine short films, by eight Philadelphia & New York based filmmakers, Sunday September 9, 2012, 6 PM sharp, at International House Philadelphia.
This collection of recently completed work, represents independent filmmaking in its purest form! Work forged out of laughter, tears, and hardship; photographed, cut, paste, and assembled whenever the spare moment allowed. Our one-night-only screening will serve as a launching pad for these films into the festival circuit.
Our program includes:
The Oresteia – directed by John Gross
A Simple Game of Catch – directed by Daniel Kremer
Nature Boys – directed by Tim Young
Children – directed by Ian McGuire
Insignificant – directed by Ian McGuire
An Alien in Love – directed by Naoko Masuda
A Film by Aaron Hollander
Pandora – directed by Eric Sciole
A Film by Max Margulies
Admission is free, however donations will be accepted at the door. All contributions will help offset the filmmakers’ production and venue costs, which come directly out-of-pocket. Doors will open for seating at 5:30 PM, but please be prompt as we plan to begin at 6 PM sharp. The program will run approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. So please join us to partake in this one-of-a-kind evening!
