Our Mission

Project Twenty1 has an EPIC mission. We Exhibit, Promote, Inspire, and Connect artists from all disciplines through film festivals, networking events, educational workshops, and competitions in the Greater Philadelphia area that attract participants from all over the world. We partner with other organizations globally to provide maximum exposure for our participants, community, and sponsors.

We stand by our slogan, “Not Just a Film Festival,” as we seek to go beyond the standard conventions of a festival. We help unite the world of independent artists, allow them direct paths to their audiences, and at the same time build the cultural and artistic scene in Philadelphia and beyond.

We transform independent filmmaking from a trap-laden nightmare into an exciting adventure. We create a network of support, promotion, and distribution through which motivated filmmakers and artists can get their work seen internationally. And in the process, we witness the birth of exciting new creative relationships and truly original, entertaining films.

About projecttwenty1

ProjectTwenty1 ProjectTwenty1

Project Twenty1 is more than just a film festival – it is an organization that is dedicated to the promotion of Independent Filmmakers around the world. We host filmmaker networking parties, run an annual “Film-A-Thon” where we screen 21 notable films in an all-day festival, and host a 21-day filmmaking competition. This summer, Teams from all over the world will have 21 days to create a short film or animation based on a common secret element. We allow our Teams to make films of any genre, provided that they incorporate our “secret Element” into their film, thus proving it was made within the 21 day period. We will then screen the completed work at the International House, nationally distribute the top 21 films on DVD, and send selected films to other partner festivals to help our filmmakers gain exposure & save money. Last year, we had Teams from Miami to Michigan, from Connecticut to Hawaii, and even Japan!
