Final Days Of The Philadelphia Film Festival Feature M. Night Shyamalan, Outdoor Screenings, Parties And More, Now Through October 28

After seven days of fantastic films and special events, the 21st annual Philadelphia Film Festival is showing no signs of slowing down.

Whether you’ve been procrastinating on seeing some of the most interesting and innovative films from around the globe or your eyes have been glued to the screen for a week straight, there’s no reason to miss out on the final four days of the festival.

To help you make the most out of the remaining days, check out our top picks for the rest of the fest, below.

10th Anniversary of Signs with M. Night Shyamalan: Friday, October 26, screening begins at 7:30 p.m. followed by Q&A, Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut Street, $12. Celebrate the 10th anniversary of M. Night Shyamalan’s unnerving story of a father (Mel Gibson) dealing with tragic loss, shaken faith and a creepy crop circle in his backyard (set in Bucks County). After the screening, join Shyamalan himself and Steve from WMMR’s Preston & Steve for a post-film Q&A.

Scream on the Green: Friday, October 26, screening begins at 7:15 p.m., Shoemaker Green, 217 S. 33rd Street, FREE. Get into the Halloween spirit with a free, outdoor double-feature at UPenn’s Shoemaker Green. The evening kicks off with The American Scream, a documentary that examines the lengths residents of a New England town go to decorate their homes for Halloween. Afterwards, discover why you shouldn’t buy a home on an ancient burial ground with the still-terrifying horror film, Poltergeist.

Closing night film & party: Saturday, October 27, screening at 7 p.m., Annenberg Zellerbach Theater, 3680 Walnut Street, $20-50. Celebrate the closing night of the festival with Robert Zemeckis’ (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump) new film Flight, starring Denzel Washington followed by a Q&A with the legendary director. Relive your favorite films from the festival long into the night with a party at Sigma Sound Entertainment.

Don’t forget, the festival runs through Sunday, so get out and watch some movies. For the complete schedule, go here.
