Philadelphia, PA, October 27, 2016 --(PR.com)-- FirstGlance Film Festival, Philadelphia's Independent Film Festival since 1996, brings a weekend of premieres, original and local indie films from the Philadelphia area and around the world together to vie for the title, "Best of the Fest." The 19th annual festival includes unique screening programs, networking with filmmakers, beer and wine bar, food trucks, cast and crew, after-parties, live filmmaker interviews on the red carpet with Ivonna Cadavar from YouToo America TV, and a filmmaker brunch.
Highlights of FirstGlance include an opening night happy hour, live filmmaker interviews on the red carpet with host Ivonna Cadavar, the raven-haired temptress who haunts, teases, and tantalizes viewers each week on nationally-syndicated "Macabre Theatre," and after parties with cast, crew, filmmakers and special invited guests at The Plough & the Stars and other Old City locations beginning around 10:30 p.m.
It's only after they've dropped the cadavar on the steps of a funeral parlour that they realise they don't have any money, so suddenly they have to abandon all plans of going crazy for a few months and knuckle down and get jobs.
