Heading into programming land. Festival #14, virtual with 8 screenings (22 seat capacity) here in the city of Brotherly love, is coming into focus. The city is at 15% screenings capacity for indoor seating! Not very good, so so we are focusing on designing our own platform to interface virtually. We will also look to screen outdoors, more on this soon. Comments? Fire away here, IG, Twitter, email, etc. #piff #pifffilms #phillyfilm #PTW21

Will Democracy fall? Watching submissions come in you wonder what people are thinking. We see chaos, pain, and anxiety. We see civil strife. We’re thinking that as the US election nears we’ll see more.

Philadelphia, Do you love Short Films? This weekend, Please watch African American Short Films TV ,10/31/2020, on Philadelphia Station: KYW TV3 CBS PA. Time: 12:30PM
Hey All, first 20 pages of the pilot for my new crime/drama "A Penny for your thoughts...", titled "Smooth Operator", are done (only 20 more to go)! Episode one will be completed and polished by weeks end next week. Started the search for rehearsal halls in the Phoenix area (special thanks to Daryl Mallet and Iris Huey) for August. Signed on my good friend Steve Wargo of SWAT-HD as my Director of Cinematography (and a fine one at that) and building a strategy for online and real world advertisement (gotta get more eyes on this page). Phew, all for now. Spread the word!
Despite setbacks from COVID-19, the Annecy Festival will continue to show their animated films.
How will film festivals adapt after COVID-19? Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian have some ideas.
Congratulations goes out to Mark Borkowski for joining the Pifffilms.tv Twitter and Instagram Feed on Saturday. It was a vast Success, TerriAnn. Mark spoke at length @ his Premier of "HUNGRY GHOSTS" which he was scribe and Actor.
Stay tuned for further Word on the Virtual Fest or postponement of the Live #13 Best of the Fest. Pifffilms.tv

This film festival looks fresh and exciting! There are so many wonderful indie films out there and I am constantly searching for ones that really blow me away. I watched Empathy, Inc. not long ago and I was very impressed by the acting and directing in this film. It’s the story of a venture capitalist, Joel (Zack Robidas), who finds himself in a sticky extreme virtual reality investment. He struggles to decipher between what’s real and what’s not as he tries to protect his wife Jessica (Kathy Searle) from the dangers of the VR. Director, Yedidya Gorsetman, does incredible things (uses monochromatic colors, forced frame shots, and dutch angles) with this indie budgeted movie. I highly recommend catching this film on Youtube on your next movie night in!
Hi folks, my name is Colleen and I am a Certified Intimacy Director with Intimacy Directors and Coordinators. I am going to begin training to do this work in film and TV after having previously focused only on theatre. As I do so, I’d love to have the opportunity to shadow or PA on any shoots that may be happening here in Philly in the next couple of months. They don’t have to include any intimacy work. I just need to get the lay of the land of a film set. For more background on my work, my website is www.colleenhughes.com Thank you so much!
Can’t wait for this year’s festival! I like to think that the best films come from festivals, especially the ones within cities like Philly. One I recently came across is called Empathy Inc. and deals with a man who desperately seeks to dismantle a corrupted company that has created deadly extreme VR technology. The movie pulls from the sci-fi, horror, and neo-noir genres to create a thrilling experience that is all its own. Director Yedidya Gorsetman pulled together an incredible team of filmmakers when creating this independent film to produce a technologically dangerous universe that knows no bounds. This film went around the festival circuit in 2018 and I read that it was even nominated for an award at the Philadelphia Film Festival! It's now available to stream on platforms such as Amazon, YouTube, and a couple of other services and it’s definitely worth the attention!
I've been following the PIFF for awhile now! The films that come out of this festival are truly amazing! I thought I could contribute to this page by providing info on this new indie sci-fi thriller, Empathy, Inc., that takes a twist on the saying ,"Taking a walk in someone else's shoes". This body-switching film is like no other. I'd have to commend the director, Yedidya Gorsetman, for his choice to shoot this film in black and white to bring a mysterious and eerie tone to the overall film. With the compelling and thrilling storyline, I'd have to recommend this film! You can find it on iTunes and Amazon, feel free to let me know what you think! :)
