Community Screenings are free events curated in partnership with Philadelphia arts and advocacy organizations.
The Philadelphia Film Society is proud to host monthly community screenings of curated films at the Philadelphia Film Center. With community screenings, PFS partners with local arts and advocacy organizations in an effort to use our screens to amplify underheard voices, bring new communities to the movies, and make movies accessible to new audiences.
Screenings are open to the public and include post-film engagement activities, like quizzos, art projects, and talk-backs.
All community screenings are free to attend.
