Squash Film Festival to Debut at U.S. Open October 8

The 2017 U.S. Open Squash Film Festival is the world’s first festival devoted solely to documentary films about squash.

Presented in partnership with Drexel University, the festival will be on Sunday October 8th. The films will be shown in the 125-seat screening room at Drexel’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design’s URBN Center Annex at 3401 Filbert Street. This is less than a two-minute walk from the U.S. Open in the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

Each film will be screened by the filmmaker and there will be a question & answer session after each screening. The four films are all professionally-produced, highly-acclaimed documentaries that explore important issues of gender, history, politics, race and class through the lens of the game of squash. The films represent years of research and filming, both here in the East Coast of America and in Colombia, England and Pakistan.

The films include Behind the Glass (2017), Girl Unbound: The War To Be Her (2016), Jonah Barrington: Blood Sweat & Squash (2017) and Keep Eye on Ball: The Hashim Khan Story (2009).

Tickets are free for the 2017 U.S. Open Squash Film Festival and can be reserved here. Film Festival attendees will be able to receive $10 off U.S. Open Squash tickets for Sunday’s matches.
