Throughout the year, International House Philadelphia presents hundreds of public programs to Philadelphia-area residents, fostering a global community by celebrating the world’s cultural diversity and exploring issues from an international perspective. Year after year, we continue our legacy of introducing international art and culture to Philadelphia, while at the same time acclimating our residents to the American way of life. Beyond our well-known film program, we also host over 200 events each year including concerts, art exhibits, seminars, symposiums, receptions, cultural & cuisine events, and more.
