That's a Wrap!
The Philly edition of the 6th year of the Backseat Film Festival was the best yet! We had so many great movies it was hard to decide which ones to show, and even harder to decide who should win the awards. We finally made our decisions, which you will find below, congratulations to all the winners, and to all our participating filmmakers!
