cff-logo-2015-2It’s time to start announcing the lineup for the 2015 Cinedelphia Film Festival!  This year’s theme is loosely based around the “outsider”:  untrained filmmakers, special interest archivists, and those who simply refuse to play by Hollywood’s rules.  As always, it’s an eclectic and highly entertaining lineup of programming that you won’t find anywhere else in the Delaware Valley.  Today’s programming announcements include:

The 2015 Opening Night film (THU 4/9) is a special work in progress screening of locally produced documentary VIETNAM APPRECIATION DAY!  The film’s subjects and crew will be in attendance and there will be a live post-screening USO show!
SAT 4/11 will feature a special 10th Anniversary Celebration of local documentary ROCK SCHOOL with director Don Argott and subjects in attendance and post-screening live performances from School of Rock students/alumni!
On THU 4/16 we’re teaming up with the Academy of Natural Sciences for a special edition of their crazy popular Mega-Bad Movie Night series with a post-screening “killer animal” edition of the movie-themed comedy game show Movie Movie Live!
And on FRI 4/17 we’re teaming up with to present the Philly Premiere of the brand new complete cut of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION with director/star Chris Strompolos in attendance!
