FirstGlance Film Festival In Philadelphia

Firstglance Film Festival

‘Lights, Action, Camera!’

The FirstGlance Film Festival is Philly’s longest running independent film festival, in its 18th year, celebrating and exhibiting the best in true indie film! The Film Festival is taking place at The Franklin Institute from November 11 to 13.

What is the FirstGlance Film Festival? FirstGlance started in 1996 and brings Indie filmmakers and audiences together. The festival features Documentaries, Shorts, Animation, Web Series, Student Directed and International films from across the globe. It’s a way for filmmakers to get their projects shown in public venues, getting exposure, yet at the same time, for those to appreciate the fine arts of film making.

The FirstGlance Film Festival has grown over the years not only in Philadelphia, but in 2000, started an annual film festival in Burbank, California. Not only is FirstGlance an annual event bringing filmmakers together from all over, but that it has year round activities that include Feature & Short Screenplay Competitions, On-line Film Competitions, Short Film Productions, Show Us Your Shorts Screenings, and Online Distribution.

Overall, not only will audiences be able to catch glimpses of certain movies and vote for the “Best of the Fest”, but that they will be able to come mix and mingle with filmmakers, casts and crews at great after parties. This film festival is not to be confused with the Philadelphia Film Festival. With so much going on within the film industry, the FirstGlance Film Festival is one event in Philadelphia that you should not forget.
