Film

During the fall, winter and spring, The Center presents documentary films on artists, art forms, architecture and more. From time to time we also present independent and international films that would not otherwise be shown locally. Films are often presented in coordination with The Center’s BIG IDEA projects as a way to enhance and deepen understanding of the theme or concept being explored.
