Cinedelphia brings one-of-a-kind films to Philly for fifth year

Here's a quick look at some of the more intriguing films

The fifth annual Cinedelphia Film Festival will kick off on Thursday, April 13. Presented by the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art (PhilaMOCA), the alternative film fest features a mix of uncommon and unique movie picks.

Here's a quick look at some of the more intriguing films at this year's Cinedelphia.

"Dark Night" – The film makes a critique on American gun culture. Filmmaker Tim Sutton will be in attendance. He loosely based "Dark Night" on the 2012 Aurora, Colorado, shooting.

"The Lure" – It's a horror-musical from Poland that tells the story of two mermaids who have to adjust to life on land.

"Becoming Bond" – The life of one-time James Bond actor George Lazenby is told in a unique documentary-narrative hybrid. It was included in the 2017 SXSW Film Festival.

"The Transfiguration" – An official selection at the Cannes Film Festival,  "The Transfiguration" follows troubled teen Milo, who hides behind his fascination with vampires. The thriller is set in NYC.

"How to Build a Time Machine" – Filmmaker Jay Cheel’s documentary focuses on two men with a shared interest in time travel.
