Posted on 09/30/18 by TheAARPBulletin, AARP Blog Author

From riveting features to timely documentaries, the Philadelphia Film Festival, Oct. 18-28, offers a wide variety of fare.

AARP Pennsylvania will again be a patron sponsor, and this year AARP members and guests can get a $2 discount on each ticket. Simply go to the film festival site,, and use the code PFF27PHL.

Now in its 27th year, the Philadelphia Film Society event showcases independent and foreign cinema, with more than 100 movies at the Prince, Ritz Five and Ritz East theaters.

Check the website for the latest list of films, screening times, VIP receptions and appearances by actors, directors and industry guests.

AARP will sponsor two films with themes that are relevant to older adults, such as caregiving, healthy living and dementia. Each year the festival draws more than 25,000 fans, making it a great opportunity for community outreach.

“This is a way for us to engage our members and the larger community in a different way, where we provide fun with a purpose,” said Yocasta Lora, community outreach director for AARP Pennsylvania.

AARP representatives will be at booths at many of the screenings to provide audiences with information.
