ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Philadelphia Stories, the landmark television series which aired on WYBE TV 35 for 8 seasons from 2001 to 2011, chronicled our city’s rich cultural fabric and imagined futures through the eyes of independent filmmakers and community storytellers. It introduced all genres of filmmaking and gave many filmmakers their first broadcast premiere.
Now, 20 years later, PhillyCAM, with generous support from the Independence Public Media Foundation, is providing Philadelphians the opportunity to revisit these memorable independent films. Join us in reintroducing this groundbreaking series to the community of Philadelphia and beyond. Learn More
