A new documentary about Philly’s film scene, which was shut down in 2014 by a court ruling

By Emily ClementsPublished April 12, 2018 12:15:12The city of Philadelphia has lost a federal appeals court ruling that effectively shut down the film scene in the city, which had become a magnet for artists, directors, filmmakers, actors and writers who came to Philadelphia from across the country for the festival circuit.

The ruling was issued in March by a federal district judge in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

The film festival circuit was a hotbed for local filmmaking, but it also attracted filmmakers and writers from all over the country.

The event in the heart of Philadelphia attracted hundreds of filmmakers and dozens of writers from around the world who wanted to work on projects that would generate revenue for the city.

In a letter to the city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, U.S. District Judge Mark E. Thomas said the festival “has ceased to exist and its effect has been felt across the state.”

Thomas said that, in addition to the event being a major economic driver for the City of Lancaster and the surrounding communities, the film festival also had an impact on local tourism, as well as on local businesses and individuals.

The decision has been met with celebration in the film industry, as several local films have been released and a number of other films that were produced in partnership with the festival were released at festivals across the city this past year.

The Lancaster Festival of Contemporary Art, the city’s film and theater board, released a statement on Tuesday welcoming the decision.

“The Lancaster Festival is a significant, successful and historic event for the region,” the statement read.

“We will continue to support the Lancaster Festival, as we have for more than 20 years, with every opportunity to make Lancaster a better place.”

The festival was a major draw for film and television filmmakers from across Pennsylvania and beyond, including a slew of major awards.

The 2017 festival winner was “The Wedding,” which received an Oscar nomination.
