If you’d like to donate a larger amount ($5,000+) and recieve benefits such as a lifetime CFS membership (FREE movies), please contact Brad Ritter, president of the Charlotte Film Society’s board at email@example.com or (704) 577-8221. We are adding members to our Executive Producers Guild.
Update Feburary 2021: We have named the community cinema, The Independent Picture House! For more details check out the updates tab or this webpage.
In 1982, the non-profit Charlotte Film Society started bringing foreign and independent films to Charlotte audiences. We have never stopped! But we’ve also never had a home of our own. So we are asking your help to build the Charlotte Film Society Community Cinema. Every donation gets us closer to the goal of opening our cinema in 2021.
During these nearly 4 decades of providing an alternative to the cineplex for Charlotte filmgoers, The Charlotte Film Society has screened films at venues as diverse as C3 Lab, Ayrsley Grand, ImaginOn, The Manor Theatre, Theatre Charlotte, VisArt Video, and the Wells Fargo Auditorium at Knight Theater. With the shutting down of the Manor Theatre in spring 2020, the last of the dependable arthouse venues has left the Queen City.
The Charlotte Film Society plans to make our new home the home for foreign and independent movies in Charlotte.
The Charlotte Film Society is negotiating a lease for our very own 3-screen cinema. In this space, we will
-Show foreign, independent, and other film programming that is otherwise not available in Charlotte
-Screen our independent, diverse, and interesting film programming 365 days/year!
-Host speakers and provide film-based community outreach
-Act as a hub for film groups and filmmakers throughout the Charlotte area.
-Program films for our audience: YOU!
We think--and we think that you’ll agree!--that the time has come for the Charlotte Film Society to have our own community cinema.
So we’re asking you to help fund this space. Every donation matters to us and helps us get to our goal. Donate and share! We appreciate you, and we know you’ll appreciate our new home.
