About this Event

The Philadelphia Film Factory (Philm Factory) is a new initiative developed by Eli Lu Entertainment to help the Independent film community gain experience, exposure, and obtain various financial opportunities through film programs, events, and competitions. We want to cultivate, educate, and empower a film community of like-minded individuals from above and below-the-line talent and crew. Though the use of competition, the Philm Factory provides a fun environment for Independent film community members to challenge themselves creatively.
