Summer Stuff: Outdoor Films and Food Trucks at Aviator Park


DriveInMovie

Okay, so it ain’t exactly a drive-in, but dig it: This summer, The Galleries At Moore College will be bringing Film Al Fresco to Aviator Park (right across the street from Moore at 1916 Race Street)–a new program which brings local indie filmmakers and Philadelphia food trucks together for big, outdoor screenings. The films will be shown on a big-ass outdoor screen. The filmmakers will get to introduce them and answer questions from the crowd after the credits have rolled. And all throughout, the people watching will get to gorge themselves on food truck grub. A perfect summer night out for you artsy-and-foodsy types. Here’s what the folks from Moore College have to say about it.

Dedicated to supporting the city’s community of film and food enthusiasts, Film al Fresco is a juried competition and showcase for independent filmmakers from the Greater Philadelphia region. The series expands The Galleries’ commitment to presenting the work of emerging Philadelphia-based artists and its role as a venue for exhibitions and programs that focus on innovative ideas in contemporary art and visual culture.

Film Al Fresco will run on four Fridays throughout the summer, with the films starting at dusk (or around 8pm). Check out the full schedule of films, filmmakers and food trucks after the jump.
