In the earliest days of the moving image, Philadelphia was home to numerous inventors and promoters whose innovations helped shape the cinema medium and launch the motion picture industry. Using interviews and archival footage, this documentary reveals the largely untold story of Philly’s place in film history. Director Andrew Ferrett and producer Carrie Rickey will join us after the film for a Q&A.
