Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival


With our very successful inaugural year behind us, the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival has upgraded its venue and has expanded its programming. This year we have dedicated more time to our Bizarre Block to highlight more experimental films, and we have expanded our Local Shorts program. We have also opened more slots for feature films and added the category "Other" to accept a wider variety of genres.

PUFF was founded to bring the best new and undiscovered genre films to fans in Philadelphia. 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.

PUFF 2016 Call for Entires

The Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival (PUFF) is now accepting feature length and short film submissions for 2016. The first year film festival aims to bring independent genre films to Center City Philadelphia.

 

Run by Fangoria writer Madeleine Koestner  and longtime pop culture blogger Alex Gardner, 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.

 

“Philadelphia has a lot of great retro events, but it lacks a dedicated genre film festival to showcase new and upcoming talent,” explains Koestner.  “We are launching PUFF to give Philadelphia its own film festival to celebrate horror, sci-fi and bizarre movies that are not normally showcased at more mainstream events. We aim to grow PUFF into a multi-media event where people can come enjoy our great city while experiencing the best in new cinema.”

 

The festival will focus not only on delivering an alternative film festival to the local movie fanatics of Philadelphia, but 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.

 

“Eventually we hope to include the popular aspects of all Philly nightlife where filmmakers and attendees can watch great movies then get together to discuss the films, network and have a little fun,” said Gardner. “Discovering great films will always be the focus, but after the credits, we want to make sure the filmmakers and badgeholders have a party to go to.”

 

Film submissions are now being accepted through Filmfreeway and Without a Box for all categories with a heavy focus on horror and sci-fi. Both PUFF festival directors are also available for interviews.
