Philly Film Fans, Must Listen! PUFF 2017 Chat with Madeleine Koestner

Hey everyone, one of our favorite events of the year is this weekend and I had the chance to catch up with Madeleine to talk about it! It’s the second annual Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival (aka Now That’s What I Call a Film Festival… a tidbit I “learned” on I Like to Movie Movie today. Madeleine is one of the founders and she used to write for Fangoria, I could tell you lots more about her, but mostly, she’s just cool people. This is playing on all of our feeds (other than the one for upcoming kids podcast, because it’s not a kid friendly chat) and is the first of hopefully more bonus episodes that will do so. We hope you enjoy listening to our wonderful and talented friend.

Looks like for the second year, my lame ass may not get down there physically, but don’t let that stop you. You can be far less lame than me and get to Philly this weekend (I’m still trying to un-lame-ify myself and get there for a day, but our very own Garrett will be there all fucking weekend y’all).
