Thursday, June 28th, we will be partnering with the Hickory International Council for our third "International Short Films Night"!

Starting at 7:00pm at the Drendel Auditorium on the SALT Block we will be showing around 90 minutes worth of short films from around the world, ranging from Oscar-nominated live action films, award-winning animated films, and some other special ones mixed in.  Some of these films were featured during the most recent Children's International Film Festival in April and shared with students across in the county.  After the films are done, we will hold an optional discussion of the films and let the audience tell us which one was their favorite.

This special event is open and free to the public!  Please feel free to invite friends that are not current members of either the Footcandle Film Society or the Hickory International Council as your guests.

We are excited about this special evening, and thanks to the Hickory International Council for the idea and their support.  We hope to see you at this special event on Thursday, June 28th!

Footcandle Film Society was founded in 2009 and has provided the citizens of Catawba County with an opportunity to view and discuss films that have traditionally not been available or shown in theaters in the area. The film society has shown at least one film per month since its inception, with the films ranging from documentaries, foreign narratives, and award-nominated movies of all genres.  The screenings all include moderated discussions of the films.

In addition to the monthly film screenings, the film society also brings the annual Footcandle Film Festival and Children's International Film Festival events to Western North Carolina.
