Shining a spotlight on 'Filmadelphia at the Roxy'

See also

Once a month at the newly renovated Roxy Theater in Center City Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Film Society hosts a movie showcase called "Filmadephia at the Roxy." It's a chance for local amateur filmmakers to screen their films, gain exposure, and impact their community.

The monthly screening series is funded by a grant awarded through the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge, supporting innovative projects that inspire and enrich Philadelphia’s communities. Speaking on the showcase, Vice President of Arts at the Knight Foundation Dennis Scholl said “Art brings people together. But to create it, artists need spaces where they can connect and share ideas and perspectives. The Philadelphia Film Society is providing just that kind of platform.”

“This is one of the many projects we had in mind when we first took over the management of the Roxy,” said PFS Executive Director Andrew Greenblatt. “We’re so thrilled to be able to provide local filmmakers the outlet they deserve to showcase their films. There is so much talent in Philadelphia and we believe that this program will give these filmmakers the opportunity to share their passion with the rest of the Philadelphia community.”

Tonights "Filmadelphia at the Roxy" showcase will feature "The Witmans" by director Joe Lee, "Maquette 1:1000" directed by Doris ChiaChing Lin, and and "Triptych" directed by Hilary Brashear. You can find out more about the films playing tonight at the Philadelphia Film Society website.
