Get The College Experience at Philadelphia Film Festival!
By Sophia Galvan, Marketing Intern
The 25th Annual Philadelphia Film Festival is just days away! Running October 20-30, this local tradition brings the best independent and international films of this year to Philly before they hit screens worldwide. #PFF25 welcomes filmmakers, industry professionals, and special guests to the City of Brotherly Love for the best 10 days of the year. Whether you are an aspiring filmmaker, a full-time film buff, or just a typical movie fan, you will find something to fall in love with the 120+ films we will be screening.
The financial struggle of being in college is no stranger to us, so we offer specially priced festival badges for students. This student badge costs $75 and comes with perks like priority admission to screenings and access to the festival lounge for students who are 21+. If you’re not up for the $75 plunge, we also have regular tickets available for each screening.
Looking for free screenings? Look no further. PFS On Us is a free ticketing program presented by PNC Arts Live that provides access to films in these select categories: American Independents, Documentary Showcase, and State of the Union. These films are fresh, unflinching, and honest. They explore a wide range of topics from falling in love to criminal justice reform. These films are meant to start a conversation, and what better audience to do this with than college students? In fact, the State of the Union films – supported by the Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation – will be hosted in University City at Drexel University’s URBN Annex, and will be a space for not only movie-watching, but also discussion on the issues presented in each film.
All 21+ festival ticket and badge holders have access to the festival lounge located at 126 Chestnut St, which is stocked with snacks and drinks included with your ticket/badge. One more time for the people in the back? FREE FOOD AND BOOZE. I know what you’re thinking, “So you’re saying I get to see cool movies and eat and drink as much as I want for that price?” Yes. That’s exactly what I’m saying.
