The first night of the festival includes a showcase of contemporary music videos made by Philadelphia filmmakers. Altogether the show runs feature length and the selections were picked by a panel of judges with representatives from WXPN, City Paper, The Deli Philadelphia and The Key.
The following night, music video historian Stephen Pitalo will give a century-spanning presentation on the medium's history, participate in a Q&A and host a music video trivia game. The rest of the weekend includes showings of long form music videos, a documentary on a long-gone music video channel and a burlesque tribute to Weird Al and They Might Be Giants (yes, really).
For fans of the music video, this festival is sure to be a nostalgic trip to the past and an educational look at a still-evolving medium. Find a full schedule of the festival's events here.
