PhilaFilm,” the Philadelphia International Film Festival & Market, is sponsored by the International Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers, Inc., and is administered by the PHILAFILM Festival Committee.

PhilaFilm was established in 1977 as an event to showcase the productions of Independent, multicultural film and video artists worldwide and is managed by the PhilaFilm Festival Committee.

PhilaFilm is the region’s longest-running, international, Independent film and video competition.

 Entries are classified into two (2) screening classes, Competition and Market. Competing entries are those works entered for prize and award consideration and each entry competes against works in its respective class and category. Market entries are those works entered solely for sales and rental. Market entries do not participate in the competition nor do they receive any prizes or awards. Competition entries, however, are automatically in the Market Class.
