Philm

What is a Philm?

A Philm is a Film shown by Philo. Founded in 2002, the Philomathean Society Philm Committee screens esoteric films to help satisfy the tastes of culture-hungry Penn students. Film selections include a variety of foreign productions, documentaries, and philosophical investigations, and are often accompanied by professors who speak on particular elements of interest following the screening.
