Insider Tip
Plan your schedule in advance and buy your tickets early as many screenings sell-out quickly. Get to the venue ahead of time, as there are no trailers prior to screenings.


The Philadelphia Film Society was formed in 2001 by the TLA Entertainment group to help produce the annual Philadelphia Film Festival. In 2009, the pair split amicably and formed two separate festivals; the Philadelphia Film Festival, held by the Philadelphia Film Society; and CineFest, held by TLA.

In the fall of 2009, the PFS announced the 18 1/2 Philadelphia Film Festival, which featured an abbreviated selection of films and events. Several months later in April 2010, the PFS partnered with Pennsylvania Hospital for the Spring Preview, which consisted of several free screenings at the Prince Music Theater.
