Philadelphia Independent Film Festival / June 25 - 28, 2009 ... roger that ,,,

Hello everybody,

Thank you to all that have been stopping by the Studio, calling, emailing, etc. to talk about the Festival. It has been a great experience hearing from everybody and we look forward to continuing the discussions on Monday evenings at the freeRADlab cafe. We are working on getting the discussion groups together now. Screenings began in September! Stop by and support fellow Film Makers and the Philadelphia Independent Film festival if you are in Philadelphia. Free Coffee/Tea ... Mondays, 8pm-12am EST. $5.

We have been hard at work putting the next Festival together and have begun to officially screen movies for June 2009. This is by far the best part of the festival. We plan to vBlog this as we go ... We hope to screen over 800 movies this year! PLEASE try and send them in early! We are working on the New Festival website now. We'll have updates and a launch by Nov 13th. Nov 26 is the official opening of submissions. BUT, if you feel it is ready and want to send it over now, please do. Check out for more information.

The Festival Blog is churning and we welcome your input. We will also Blog again on and are looking for Pre and Post Festival Bloggers. If you want to Blog for the festival or provide reviews of movies, get in touch and ask for myself or Richard Weissman...

Sign up for our RSS feed for Festival updates as they happen ... The studios are open 7 days a week.

See you soon,
Benjamin Barnett
Festival Director
