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, THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA OFFICE OF ARTS CULTURE and the CREATIVE ECONOMY - Performances in Public Spaces Program, AND PHILLYCAM.
