Street Movies!


It’s time to pull out the lawn chairs and blankets for another season of free outdoor screenings in your neighborhood. Street Movies! is back for a sixteenth summer of independent film and video. This year’s exciting line-up of animated, documentary, and experimental films focuses on youth-produced videos as well as films about refugees, fitness, and the arts heritage of Philadelphia.

This presentation of Street Movies! is made possible by support from PECO and funded in part by a grant through the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority’s Fund for Art and Civic Engagement (FACE).

Street Movies! is a free, year-round screening series for audiences of all ages that tours neighborhoods around the Philadelphia region, bringing a program of independent film from around the world to local parks, lots, playgrounds, and community spaces. Each screening is hosted by a community organization and followed by a moderated discussion about the topics raised in the films. It’s a great way to see films, talk about community issues and meet your neighbors.
