The PhiladelphiaCinema Alliance is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 to producePhiladelphia's two existing world-class film festivals (CineFest and QFest) aswell as to present year-round international film programming throughout thecity. But the festivals themselves are the ones with a history.

PhiladelphiaCineFest: In 1992, International House and its president Ellen Davisproduced the inaugural Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema (PFWC), with LindaBlackaby as Artistic Director. TLA Entertainment took over management of PFWCin 2001 and in 2003 renamed it the Philadelphia Film Festival. For severalyears the festival was produced by the Philadelphia Film Society (PFS). Late in2008, there was a break-up resulting in the creation of the Philadelphia CinemaAlliance which produced and programmed the 2009 Philadelphia FilmFestival/CineFest. Going forward, The Alliance presents the Festival (nowsimply named Philadelphia CineFest) annually in April as well as PhiladelphiaQFest, the long-running GLBT film festival, in July.
