The Philadelphia Philm Factory (Film Factory) is a new initiative developed by Eli Lu Entertainment to help the Independent film community gain experience, exposure, and obtain various financial opportunities through film programs, events, and competitions. We want to cultivate a film community of like-minded individuals, from above and below-the-line talent and crew. Through the use of competition, the Philm Factory provides a fun environment for Independent film community members to challenge themselves creatively.

Each month the Philm Factory will post competitions tailored to the independent film community. Participants will have the opportunity to submit to competitions that fit their interests. From the special effects artist who can turn a human into a walking corpse to the set designer that can turn your grandmother’s basement into a prison cell for Lecter Hannibal – the Philm factory will cover it all!

The winner will receive a $300 (Vista Gift Card) and online recognition.
