The Maas Building

In partnership with Project Twenty1, FilmProv, the popular Washington DC area combination indie film and improv show, will make its Philadelphia debut at the Maas Building. In addition to presenting an amazing live performance poking fun at DVD special features, this year’s FILMPROV Philly Style selections include Henry V (directed by Gene Diringer), Drawn (directed by Andy Ritchie), and You: Keith’s Enigma (directed by Sean McKnight).
“What excites us most about this isn’t just the creativity of the idea, it’s that the concept sits right at the halfway point between the perpetually vying shortform and longform schools of improv, the former focusing on quick, heavily structured games, the latter more free-flowing and based around longer scenes.” – The Onion’s AV Club, Philadelphia
