Last week was completely packed with special events going on at the Philadelphia Film Society. I got to take (my first ever) business trip down to Baltimore for the Maryland Film Festival. I’ll be posting a recap and highlights from my time down there later this week. I’ll just say that MFF was a very powerful and extraordinary film festival that really displayed the importance and love of film in such a supportive community.

Last Week on Tuesday – April 28th

I’m happy to introduce another new blog section called “Last Week on Tuesday”. Every Tuesday I’ll fill you in on what happened the previous week at PFS,  all the blood, sweat, tears and sneak previews. Last week saw a number of screenings and events for PFS. From weeding a section of Fairmount Park to literally being in the weeds with a certain screening (jokes, jokes), we saw it all.

Welcome and thank you for reading the first, of hopefully many installments, of Monday’s “Now Showing” blog post. This will be your guide for all things film/movie/experimental GIFs revolving around the Philadelphia Film Society and beyond. My goal is to not only sate your never ending thirst for irreverent click baiting blog posts, but inform you of all the exciting things happening in the coming week. Click here for a full list of this week’s showings.

…but let’s be honest, there is only one thing on peoples’ minds this week:

#GivingTuesday – A New Day of Giving

Written by Media on . Posted in Uncategorized

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, it’s easy to get wrapped up in all the hustle and bustle of Black Friday, Shop Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. But this year, another event has been brought to my attention, #GivingTuesday.  On Tuesday December 3rd, the nation will come together to celebrate and encourage the charitable activities that support nonprofits, who work tirelessly throughout the year to build their communities, and PFS is happy to be one of 5,000 organizations participating.

PFS is fortunate to be able to give back to the community in a variety of ways.  During the Philadelphia Film Festival, we have the PFF on Us and Student Education programs.  Most recently, we were able to make 30% of the inaugural Philadelphia Independent Children’s Film Festival free of charge, and we are look forward to beginning our Filmadelphia at the Roxy Series, through which local filmmakers can screen their work.  None of these programs would be possible without the your support.

One of Philadelphia’s greatest attributes is its booming art culture and we’re proud to be listed among Philadelphia’s nonprofit staples like the Art Museum, the Zoo and The Barnes Foundation (to name a few…). We can’t wait to officially re-open the PFS Theater at the Roxy, the new home of PFS, and launch year-round screenings and education programs that will enhance cinematic culture throughout Philadelphia.

Come Tuesday Dec. 3rd (#GivingTuesday), we invite you to support PFS in our efforts to complete the renovation of the PFS Theater at the Roxy through our Text To Give campaign. By having our own venue, PFS will be able to expand our free ticketing programs exponentially and share the power of film with the entire Philadelphia community. Our work wouldn’t be possible without your generous support.

Late this fall, PFS will be embarking on its newest chapter of film programming with the Philadelphia International Children’s Film Festival (Save the Dates:  November 15 – 17, 2013).   What better way to do some field research than visit Universal Pictures’ ‘Despicablimp’ as it soars through the skies of Philadelphia promoting  Despicable Me 2!
