Last night, we kicked off the 22nd annual Philadelphia Film Festival in a HUGE way. If you missed out on the festivities at the Kimmel Center and Del Frisco’s, don’t worry because it was just the beginning of all the fun to be had at this year’s Festival. However, in a program of over 90 films, it might be a little hard to decide what to see. Luckily, my Pretentious Film Majors colleague, Zachary Shevich, had a chance to catch up with the Philadelphia Film Society’s Artistic Director Michael Lerman in order to chat about the ongoing Festival and some films that are definitely worth checking out.
Prior to the Festival, a few of the programmers assembled the film society members together for an exclusive member only curator event to talk about what to expect out of this year’s line up and some gems that might be over looked in the program guide. Check out the video below to see which films Michael and Zach suggest you make a part of your schedule over the next few days:
If you’re still stumped about which films to check out during this festival, keep an eye out for some of my most anticipated films, along with exclusive interviews, giveaways, and announcements from PFF22 right here on the Philadelphia Film Society blog.
