WHAT IS FOOTCANDLE?
Footcandle Film Society was founded in 2008 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.
