Greetings Soldiers and Cinephiles.
Below are some upcoming films and events in Philadelphia worth checking out.
Wednesday March 9 at 7pm: An Evening with Kathryn Ramey (filmmaker in person!)
Saturday March 12 at 7pm: Ne Change Rein by Pedro Costa - The Philadelphia premiere of the latest Pedro Costa film. This is very exciting. Costa is far and away one of the most unique and interesting filmmakers working right now. All Philadelphia cinephiles should be going to this!
Opening at the Ritz Friday March 11:
Even the Rain by Iciar Bollain
When We Leave by Feo Aladag
Philadelphia Cinefest is also coming up soon April 7-14. The schedule has not been released yet, so we will see what kind of lineup we get.
Also, as an added bonus, for anyone who can make it to New York between now and Tuesday March 15th - Film Forum is playing Apichatpong Weersaethakul's new film Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. I will be attending this weekend, and from everything I have heard and read, this is a film worth making the trip to New York for.
