- Film Festival
The Philadelphia Film Society and the University of the Arts are proud to present Passport to World Cinema, a handpicked selection of the year's strongest cinema from around the globe. Each of the monthly screenings will include a notable international film title from the recent film festival circuit and a post-screening talkback led by a local film connoisseur. The ongoing partnership, now in its second year, encourages cinematic discussion and film education among local students and audiences via contemporary masterpieces.
