Street Movies! 2021

STREET MOVIES! 2021

Street Movies! is a free screening series for audiences of all ages that tours neighborhoods around the Philadelphia region, bringing a program of independent film - fiction, animation, documentary, and youth and community produced work - 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.

 

STREET MOVIES! IS MADE POSSIBLE WITH SUPPORT FROM PECO AND PHILLYCAM.
