Mission / description The Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival is a new event founded to bring the best new and undiscovered genre films to fans in Philadelphia. Focused around alternative screening spaces and renegade filmmaking, this DIY festival is not to be missed.

Run by a Fangoria writer and another longtime pop culture critic, PUFF has been hosting monthly screenings at one of Philly's last video rental shops, Cinemug. These screenings will culminate in a weekend-long festival that will feature a networking night, horror trivia, and plenty of exciting new features and shorts.

The festival will not only be focused on only delivering an alternative film festival to the local movie fanatics of Philadelphia, but also connecting upstart filmmakers with distribution outlets by working with local independent film distributors. The festival directors offer a combined ten years of film festival and horror journalism experience, working with Fangoria, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Another Hole in the Head, Buffalo Dreams, the Bay Area’s SiliCon, and more.

The festival directors also look forward to working with local filmmakers, artists and other venues to create a great festival where movie lovers can gather once a year to celebrate film and socialize.

PUFF's aim is to grow into a multi-media experience where people can enjoy our great city while experiencing the best in new cinema, and we'd be thrilled to have you be a part of it.
