Street Movies! Presented by PNC Arts Alive
Gather the neighbors and bring your lawn chairs. Scribe Video Center ‘s, Street Movies!, presented by PNC Arts Alive, returns in August with it’s 14th season featuring outdoor screenings of short independent films and videos in communities around Philadelphia and the tri-state area. Inspired by the tradition of outdoor screenings at African film festivals and Philadelphia ‘s street theater movement of the 1960s, Scribe created Street Movies!
Now a summer tradition across the city, neighbors gather, lawn chairs and blankets in hand, to enjoy drive-ins without cars. This year’s exciting line-up of animated, documentary, experimental and youth-produced films focuses on themes of environmental justice, the lives of new immigrants, finding good healthy foods, and honoring urban green spaces. The outdoor screenings will be preceded by live performances by some of Philadelphia ‘s most talented performing artists including internationally acclaimed poets Sonia Sanchez and Ursula Rucker.
Live performances will start at 7:45PM. All screenings will start at 8:30PM and are open to the public. Please visit our website www.scribe.org for a full schedule of films, performances and updates.
