The Awesome Fest
Free, off-beat outdoor movie screenings in Northern Liberties
June 26-August 14, 2015
Every Friday night from June 26 through August 14, The Awesome Fest will return with free outdoor movie screenings for all to enjoy.
The series will call Liberty Lands Park home this summer and will screen independent films beginning at 9 p.m. — many of the films on the roster are Philadelphia premieres, too.
The series kicks off on Friday, June 26 with a screening of Call Me Lucky, a documentary about stand-up comic Barry Crimmins, and continues throughout the summer with under-the-radar independent films.
The FREE screenings include off-beat horror films, soon-to-be cult comedies and films screened at some of the top film festivals in the world, including the Sundance and the Cannes Film Festival. The full schedule of films is available here and below.
