This weekend, check out some fresh finds from the international festival circuit at the Philadelphia Film Festival SpringFest.
Back for a second year, the three-day event presents a handful of movies and documentaries already creating a buzz ahead of hitting theaters this spring and summer.
All of the films picked will be making their Philadelphia premiere.
There's a political thriller starring Keira Knightley, a documentary about pasta master Evan Funke and a family drama featuring a powerful performance by "Crazy Rich Asians" breakout star Awkwafina.
"Featuring a selection of some of our favorites from the most recent Sundance, SXSW, Toronto and more, we’re particularly excited with this year's line-up," said Philadelphia Film Society's executive director, J. Andrew Greenblatt.
Individual tickets to each screening are $13, while all-access festival passes are $100. If you're a PFS member you can get a discount.
