The festival might be half over, but we still have plenty of great films and parties coming your way.
While we countdown and wait patiently until the Closing Night Party, there are still lots of amazing films that are premiering during the week. If some of the films you were looking forward to seeing over the weekend sold out, you’ve also got a chance to see them now.

Before, during and after films, our proud sponsors and official Old City Watering Hole of 18th Philadelphia QFest 2012, Mac’s Tavern, 228 Market St., is offering two dollars off all regularly-priced drinks and specially-priced Smirnoff QFest 2012 Cocktails with a ticket stub or VIP Badge, now through July 23 and food is served every night until midnight.
