Project Twenty1 is bringing public movies BACK to our home town of Norristown for the first time since the closing of the Norris Theater in 1982.
Movies from the Hill is a FREE outdoor screening of independent films and/or animations, conveniently located a few blocks from the Norristown Transportation Center! (the former R6 Regional Rail Line, High Speed line, etc.) This program was created by and for the Norristown Community, and many of the filmmakers screened have roots in the Greater Philadelphia area.
The goal of MFTH is twofold. First, to transform the impression of the neighborhood surrounding Norristown Arts Hill, and to show residents that Norristown is a safe, vibrant and fun place to hang out after the sun goes down. Secondly, to invite Project Twenty1′s community of artists to see the town and its many benefits for themselves, in the interests of their own fledgling businesses as a part of the town’s economic transformation.
In 2012, nearly 300 members of the Norristown Community came out to watch films and support the return of economic prosperity to Norristown through the arts.
Stay tuned to learn more about our plans to bring this program back in 2013.
If you are a filmmaker and would like your film or animation considered for future “Movies from the Hill” screenings and other Film Library programs, please submit to the Philadelphia Film & Animation Festival and check the box for “Film Library”.
Sincere thanks to our presenting sponsors for 2012, without whom Movies from the Hill would not exist.
