The Philadelphia Independent Film Festival taking place on June 26th - 29th, 2008, will screen 151 independent films from 20 international filmmaking communities. Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell calls The Philadelphia Independent Film Festival "one of those Philadelphia summer events that makes our wonderful state of Pennsylvania a fun place to visit and vacation."

The Philadelphia Independent Film Festival will showcase films throughout the historically-radical, artistically-flourishing neighborhood of Northern Liberties. All screening locations are a short walking distance of each other: North Bowl, Liberty Lands Park, Arbol Café, Liberties Walk, Tower Gallery, Media Bureau, & Woodshop Film Studios. Screenings will be accompanied by stimulating round table and filmmaker discussions, panels, demonstrations, film critiques, and a live casting call for a current project. The schedule will be announced shortly at the film festivals website blog. http://www.philadelphiaindependentfilmfestival.com/blog

With the US Metropolitan City of Philadelphia as its backdrop, the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival was conceived to become a yearly meeting of artistic and business community interests that enable and enhance the innovative, creative, collaborative, and revolutionary potential of successful film making. With his signature on a $75 million Pennsylvania Film Production Tax Credit Program called Act 55; Governor Rendell goes on to declare that "Philadelphia is a premiere movie production destination and has become the Film & TV production preference for an increasing number of producers and directors. I want to thank Media Bureau, the producers of the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival, for choosing the great City of Philadelphia to launch its annual event and I look forward to having the film festival in Northern Liberties."
