Festival Event Schedule:

NOTE ON SCHEDULE: The schedule on this website aims to approximate the cinema film festival experience, where you would watch a film followed by a live Q&A. However, as we are going virtual this year, all films will be available anytime for you to screen at our online screening room in TheatricalAtHome from November 12 – November 16, 2020.
NOTE ON Q&A’s: The Q&A’s with filmmakers will generally be LIVE and will follow the Director’s Q&A schedule. They will also be recorded and available on our Vimeo page if you miss them. Enjoy browsing the site, watching the teasers for all the films, and feel free to ask any questions on our contact button. See you at the movies!
*Some films are geo-blocked to Pennsylvania and are only available for a 48-hour period. Please read the specifications when you purchase your tickets at TheatricalAtHome.
