Philadelphia film lovers will delight in the fact that Project Twenty1, the Norristown-based non-profit, will hold its seventh annual Philadelphia Film & Animation Festival (PFAF) this week, September 27-30.
The event, which will highlight more than 100 short and feature films (including 40 world premieres), will take place mainly at the Ibrahim Theater at the International House, as well as other locations in University City.
A four-day celebration of international independent films and animation, PFAF features a curated selection of international shorts, features, music videos and web series selections, as well as 21-day filmmaking competition shorts.
There will also be film industry workshops, networking events and a star-studded red carpet awards show.
Check out the full festival schedule here.
For more than five years, Project Twenty1 has inspired the creation of 197 original short films and animations, exhibited more than 500 shorts and features and connected more than 24,000 emerging media artists, some of whom have gone on to earn Emmy awards.
Project Twenty1 is focused on helping artists and filmmakers turn their passions into careers. Share their passion, while viewing creative and exciting new films, at this terrific film fest.
Note that Project Twenty1’s Philadelphia Film & Animation Festival is entirely separate from the official Philadelphia Film Festival, which returns October 18-28.
