Philly Film Showcase
An exhibition supporting new work by talented up-and-coming local filmmakers of all ages, level, and backgrounds complete with a post-screening Q&As with the filmmakers and talent.
Celebrate our talented local filmmakers each month during the Philly Film Showcase. PFS turns the Philadelphia Film Center Black Box into a venue for up-and-coming filmmakers of all ages, level, and backgrounds. Each Showcase is followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and talent to elicit feedback from the audience.
Submitting to the program is FREE! We support our local filmmakers enthusiastically and encourage our community to do the same.
Tickets are FREE thanks to our free ticketing program PFS On Us, though donations to Philly Film Showcase are welcome.
Dock Street Brewery is the Official Beer Sponsor of Showcase!
