Our first event was a great success with so many genuinely entertaining submissions. We had such a solid group of semi-finalists for the first annual Philly TV Festival and we present them here for your enjoyment.
Thanks to all our semi-finalists for being a part of our inaugural Philly TV Festival event. You’ve blessed us with some inspiration. In this episode our semi-finalists were:
Coming to America – Everett Mason
Ya All in your Grill – Cedra Walton
Wrongful Justice – Levi Feeney
The Devil and Red Wine – Maurice Paramore
The Salima and Vicky Show – Salima Hakeem
The Layoff – Mike Pender
The Book of Nimrod – Carla P. Morales
Comida Cousins – Rashad Roulhac
Choices – Jacobi Simmons
In addition you’ll see an amazing piece from the youth artists that won our first ever Philly TV Festival future producer award. Princesses vs. Dinosaurs written, directed and shot by two sisters 7 and 5 years old. Thanks Rio and Rome Roulhac for your great addition to our festival semi-finalists submissions episode.
The festival will showcase and celebrate the medium of short form film work and web media through
panels, workshops, and presentations. Media creators are in for a powerful experience
thanks to the Inaugural Philly TV Festival (PTVF) being held on Friday
November 14th and Saturday November 15th.
The event has received the blessing of Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. who decided to present
the Philly TV Festival with a citation in City Council. The Honorable Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. shares a vision to introduce, educate, and expose attendees to the business of multimedia.
There will be a screening of video submissions and several submissions will be chosen to receive awards and recognition for their work.

The councilman talks about his vision of a better Philly where the foundations of the media are built with our young philadelphians leading the way. He speaks about how the Philly TV Festival is a great event for highlighting our already rich creative culture and it’s current media makers. We’ll have the full interview available soon on the Talk the Talk television show. In the meantime, here’s a pick of the crew in the midst of a great conversation with a man whom we respect and admire.
Our very own Charles Gregory sits down with the councilman to talk about Philly’s future as leaders in the media arts.
