The NYC premiere of Boston2philly is finally here!
Join the cast and crew of this award winning feature film as we screen the story that has captured over a dozen festival nominations and a slew of honorable mentions.


Boston2Philly is a coming-of-age independent drama that chronicles the life of Rome "Boston" Williams (Ralph A.), a young Black male from Boston, struggling with his identity and his ability to form real relationships in his new city of Philadelphia after a tragic accident takes the lives of his family.

Set on a fictional Philadelphia University campus, Rome encounters Professor Balan who challenges his freshmen class to develop a deeper relationship with their "inner selves," along with connecting on a more personal level with their peers.

Through an exploration of each other's histories, the group of diverse freshman slowly becomes a cohesive group, initially bonded by an assignment, but glued by their shared fears, hopes, and dreams. Both melodramatic and comedic, poignant and enlightening, through the personal journeys of the students, Boston2Philly reminds us all that sometimes the first step to true success comes from understanding who you were, who you are, and where you are going.

Starring: Mia Mendez, Ralph A., Cash Money Records Artist Ar-AB, Tai Birch, Shayne Witherspoon, John Jamison, Leah A., Jabez Griggs, Janise Whelan, Natalia Jablokov
