The festival runs from October 23 – November 2.

PFF29 features in-home screenings available through the Festival’s digital streaming platform, alongside nightly socially-distanced screenings throughout the 11-day Festival at the expanded 2-screen PFS Drive-In at the Navy Yard.

The Philadelphia Film Society highlighted a number of them:

Alongside the previously announced titles NOMADLAND, from Director Chloé Zhao and starring

Frances McDormand; and Cannes selection and TIFF premiere AMMONITE, starring Kate

Winslet and Saoirse Ronan, the PFS Drive-In will also feature a nightly slate totalling over a

dozen films, including BLACK BEAR, starring Aubrey Plaza as an actress-turned-director

retreating to a couple’s secluded country home to write her next script. The Drive-In will feature

powerful documentaries 40 YEARS A PRISONER, Director Tommy Oliver’s chronicling of

activist Mike Africa Jr.’s mission to free his parents following their imprisonment as a result of

the 1978 police raid on the revolutionary group MOVE’s compound and MLK / FBI, Director

Sam Pollard’s captivating examination, using recently declassified files, of the FBI’s extensive

surveillance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The PFS Drive-In will also be the exclusive home of

the PFS on Us free ticketing initiative.

PFF29 offers three pass options for audiences to choose from: the Streaming Pass ($200), the Spotlight All Access Badge ($300), and the Premiere All Access Badge ($600). Find out how to purchase and use your badges and tickets.
