    We have an exciting, special night planned for Thursday, July 18th, as we will be partnering with the Hickory International Council for our fourth annual "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, July 18th!

    July Newton-Conover Film Screening

    OPHELIA

    Monday, July 22nd

    Newton-Conover Auditorium, Newton

    7:00pm  •  $5.00 for all tickets

    The Footcandle Film Society will be screening the documentary film OPHELIA on Monday, July 22nd at the Newton-Conover Auditorium near Downtown Newton. The showtime is 7:00pm.

    This screening is part of a monthly film series at the Newton-Conover Auditorium hosted by the Footcandle Film Society.  An optional discussion of the film will take place in the auditorium immediately after the conclusion of the film.  There will be beer, wine, beverage and refreshments for sale before the film.  The screening is open to the public and all potential future film society members are welcome; no membership to the film society is required to attend the screening.

    About the film:  A re-imagining of Hamlet, told from Ophelia's perspective.  As a rebellious and motherless child, Ophelia (Daisy Ridley) is taken into Elsinore Castle by Queen Gerturde (Naomi Watts) as one of her most trusted ladies-in-waiting. Soon enough, Ophelia captures the affections of the young Prince Hamlet. A passionate romance secretly kindles between the two as the kingdom is on the brink of war amidst its own political intrigue and betrayal. When Hamlet's father is murdered and the prince begins to unravel, Ophelia sharply navigates the rules of power in Denmark.
