This year’s Philadelphia Film Festival has come and gone, and after a few days to rest/deal with a natural disaster, we’re all back at work here at the Film Society. And though festival season has passed, the great films that we all got to see won’t soon leave our minds.

Last Friday, the whole line up for this year’s Philadelphia Film Festival went live. Hopefully in the week that it’s been available, you’ve noticed that there’s a great selection this year, but for you newbies (or even some of you veteran festival goers), it might be a little overwhelming when you’re trying to decide which films to see. So, for your benefit, I took the liberty of polling some of the Philadelphia Film Society office staff to see what movies they’re most excited to see on this year’s schedule.
