The Hickory International Council and Footcandle Film Society are presenting an International Film Festival for Children (IFFC) on Saturday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the S.A.L.T. Block Auditorium. This event is a One World, One Community Festival and is an extension of the annual International Spring Fest events.
The 2013 IFFC films to be shown at the event include The Red Balloon, Ponyo, and Children of Heaven, as well a few additional short films. The morning will be dedicated to kindergarten through fifth graders, and the afternoon for those in grade six through high school. During the event there will be some international activities, such as Origami, magician shows, and internationally themed bingo. And, best of all, the event is free to the public.
Olga Kurylenko. Heard of her? Is she the next Jessica Chastain? Well the fellows weigh in on her performances in the new films "To The Wonder" and "Oblivion" as well as discuss her co-stars that you might have heard of…Benjamin Affleck and Thomas Cruise. Rounding out the episode are some bits of Hollywood news and movie recommendations of films you might want to check out.

Footcandle Film Society is pleased to announce that we will bringing the foreign language film "No" to the Carolina Theater, Thursday, May 9th at 7pm. We hope you can join us for the film and a discussion afterwards.
About the film:
An ad executive (Gael Garcia Bernal) comes up with a campaign to defeat Augusto Pinochet in Chile’s 1988 referendum. The film received an Academy Award nomination for best foreign language film of 2012.
Footcandle Film Society will be sponsoring a free public screening of the locally made documentary "Speedbird" next Thursday, April 25th at 7pm in the downstairs auditorium of the Carolina Theater. The director, CVCC history professor Richard Eller, will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film.
On this special episode of Footcandle Films Alan & Chris decide to brave the sunlight outside the studio and record in a park…in downtown Winston-Salem, NC...which just so happens to be hosting the 15th Annual RiverRun International Film Festival. They kick off things with a review of Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut "Quartet" and then highlight films they've had a chance to see at the festival. As always they close with recommendations of films you might have missed.
