- Film Festival
With the Summer Movie Season officially upon us, the Philadelphia Film Society is working hard to make sure that members get a chance to see as many Blockbusters, Spectacles, and Genre Offerings as possible. As a result, in the coming weeks members will be seeing BATTLESHIP, ROCK OF AGES, and CHERNOBYL DIARIES all BEFORE they hit theaters.
As a Penn State graduate with a BA in film and television media studies, I admit that I fancy myself a film expert, especially for a 23 year old. That is, until I start up a conversation about the greatest movies of all time with a fellow (older and wiser) film lover. I am very aware of the types of films that make it on to these sorts of AFI 'best' lists, but I am embarrassed to admit, there are quite a few I haven't seen - movies like The Godfather and Rocky that are considered staples of American cinematic culture.
