The 17th Philadelphia Film Festival was on, then off, then on, and now off -- looks like it's off for good.
For the past 7-odd years, the Film Festival has been a co-presentation of TLA Entertainment and the Philadelphia Film Society. TLA's CEO and the Film Society's board had creative differences, so the partnership split. The Film Society said it was going to hold the festival anyway, and TLA said oh, yeah? well, it was going to hold its own concurrent festival, so in your face!
Now, since they couldn't get along like adults, nobody gets to hold a film festival at all. Assholes, all of them.
