In an event which is free and open to the public (although donations will gladly be accepted), the Philadelphia Art Alliance is hosting a screening of three short independent films this Friday, January 23rd, 2015. The event is being put on in conjunction with the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival, and it will feature both locally-made and international short films.

The screening will take place at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, which is located at 261 South 18th Street. The doors for the event will open at 7 pm, and the screening begins at 8 pm. The event is slated to run until 10 pm, with coffee being served after the screenings to facilitate discussion of the films. There are a limited number of seats available, so organizers suggest that attendees arrive early.

The first film will be the 13 minute short entitled “The Invitation,” a local film directed by JP Hoffman that deals with addiction and withdrawal. The second film, from New York, is “Rambler,” an award-winning 20 minute film that tells the story of what happens when multiple crime syndicates discover they have hired the same hitman. The final film of the evening is a Spanish short film entitled “REM.” Running 16 minutes, this film is about a young man who falls in love with a girl from his dreams and has her show up in the real world to save him.

The event promises to be engaging and entertaining. Those in the Philly area this Friday night should certainly consider attending. Though the screening and coffee are free, there will be donations collected.
