A ton of UArts students are showing work here (and a UArts alum runs it) :|
Project Twenty1 Film & Animation Festival (P21Fest)
October 1-4, 2009, All-Day
University City Area, Philadelphia
P21Fest is a celebration of independent film and animation in Philadelphia hosted by Project Twenty1, a volunteer-run arts organization dedicated to inspiring, connecting, exhibiting, and promoting artists from all disciplines. The festival opens with the one-time-only Philadelphia Premiere of "You Might As Well Live" (October 1 @ 7:30 pm) , an off-the-wall comedy where Robert R. Mutt embarks on a madcap adventure to attain the three keys to being a "somebody" - a girl, some money and a championship ring.
Over 50 films will screen over the 4-Day festival, including the 21-Day Filmmaking Competition films, a collection of animated & live action shorts from all over the world based on the common secret element "Key". P21Fest will also host educational workshops, including Pitch Yourself!, a seminar to teach you pitching dos and don't, along with “Speed Networking” (a business card swap similar to the style of speed dating, but more productive)
And if you're into parties, you can't miss “Shorts and Shots” (an open-mic-style casual screening you can BYOShort!) and Friday Night FX (October 2 @ 9:30 pm), a celebration of Special FX Makeup Artists at The Ellen Powell Tiberino Museum.
