Hosted by the Philadelphia Film Society (PFS), the 23rd annual Philadelphia Film Festival features hundreds of films from around the world and special guests from the world of cinema.

Every year, the festival is bookended with blockbuster opening and closing night films. In 2013, the festival opened with All Is Lost starring Robert Redford and closed with Jason Reitman’s Labor Day.

The 10-day festival features more than 100 films from 35 countries divided into more than a dozen helpful categories.

Discover future award-winners with Centerpiece Screenings, see the latest from the Masters of Cinema, explore international stories, local filmmakers and much more. If you’re looking for something more offbeat, don’t pass up the Graveyard Shift with late-night screenings of truly bizarre cinema.

Planning on seeing multiple films? Purchase the six-pack to get into any six regular film screenings for just $60 ($50 for PFS members). A maximum of two-tickets can be used per film.

Get more access to the festival, including admission the opening/closing night festivities, with a Festival Badge. Badge Prices start at $165 and can be purchased online here.

Insider Tip: Even if your film pick is sold out, a limited number of rush tickets are often released 15 minutes prior to screenings. Tickets are full price and cash only.
