Philly's world-class film festival
For those visiting Philly in the fall, look for one-of-a-kind and world-premiere film screenings during the Philadelphia Film Festival, a widely acclaimed festival that runs for 10 days during October. One of the longest-running film festivals in the city, it is presented annually by the Philadelphia Film Society and features over 100 films in all genres. Many of the films are screened at the lovely Prince Music Theater on Chestnut Street. The same organization also hosts the Philadelphia International Children’s Film Festival in November. The Film Society has also been responsible for the revival and renovation of the Roxy Theater, a locally treasured art film movie house on Sansom Street that is scheduled to re-open soon.
