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.
