Free Summer Street Movies! By Scribe Video Center

Scribe Video Center’s Street Movies! series is a staple of Philadelphia summers–one of my favorite ongoing annual Philly programs. It’s a traveling collection of short films that screen for free in community centers and parks throughout the city. This year they are accompanied by opening words by much loved Philly folks like Sonia Sanchez,  and Lyrispect.

The season is already half way over, but be sure to catch some of these upcoming screenings over the next couple of weeks:
