Philadelphia Unnamed 2019: Fourth Annual Festival Open For Submissions
The fourth annual Phialdelphia Unnamed Film Festival, PUFF, is now open for submissions. Running out of the Proscenium Theater in the city of brotherly love PUFF looks for genre films that like to paint outside of the lines, offering patrons a viewing experience outside of the norm.
This year festival founder Alex Gardner has added local filmmakers Jill Trager and Brandon Tanczak (Creepy, Marionette, Ominous and Inside the Underground) to the team. Gardner has also enlisted the help of Horror Happens Radio host Jay Kay. Ah, this now explains all his very specific film festival related questions on our social media platforms. Well played, Jay.
Have a look at PUFF's previous lineups and if you think you have the kind of film the team is looking for go through their FilmFreeway page and submit your film.
PUFF returns to the dark heart of Philly this fall with their 4th annual celebration of the projects that not only defy film genres of science fiction, horror, underground, and more but usher new voices that will elevate the film festival experience as never before! PUFF4 is now accepting submissions on the world renowned FilmFreeway until mid-August.

PUFF has also been the home for such successful and festival gem short form programming as Chris McInroy’s Death Metal, Sam Wineman’s The Quiet Room, and Amelia Moses’s Undress Me.PUFF was founded by Alex Gardner to bring unreleased genre films to the city of Philadelphia and connect upstart filmmakers with distribution outlets. Gardner is joined this year by local filmmakers Jill Trager and Brandon Tanczak of Jerks Productions, and Jay Kay of Horror Happens Radio.“PUFF is excited to once again be working with Jerk Productions who have taken even bigger roles this year with the festival,” explained Gardner. “We are also excited for the addition of Jay who will help usher in a fresh beginning for the festival.”This year PUFF is looking for more feature films and short form films to fill out the International, Bizarre, Genre, and Local programs that will showcase the diversity of gender, race, and creative influence as only PUFF can.
