2nd Annual Philadelphia Independent Film Festival @ Northern Liberties

On the set of I Love My Bicycle

July 4th is right around the corner, but you can celebrate independence a little early again this year as the 2nd Annual Philadelphia Independent Film Festival (PIFF) brings cinema to the people all around Northern Liberties.

From June 25 to 28, experience four days of filmmaking with a festival that takes the cinema out of the theater and into your backyard. PIFF isn’t your typical flashy VIP film fest; you won’t find any red carpets or marquee names here. But what you will discover is a host of quirky, cutting-edge and up-and-coming films all within walking distance of each other thanks to PIFF’s unconventional take on film screenings. At PIFF, you can watch selected inde flicks at Exit Skate Shop, Yards Brewery and Arbol Café, just to name a few of the screening locales.

With over 800 submissions from 17 countries around the globe, there’s no telling what awaits at this year’s festival. Last year Piff showcased over 150 movies, including This is My Cheesesteak, a documentary profiling Philly’s legendary hot sandwich families and the geeky, hip-hop picture Nerdcore for Life. Audiences will get to pick their favorite flick and other awards will be dolled out for everything from the best first-time director to best sci-fi film.

North Bowl hosts Opening night from 10:30 PM to 1:30 AM. Enjoy free bowling, Hors D’oeuvres, two drink tickets and a raffle to kick the festival off. There will also be Happy Hours at numerous locations, like Standard Tap, Ortlieb’s Jazzhaus and Abbaye.
