Founded in 1982, the Charlotte Film Society continues to serve as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a choice in movie going experiences. The Charlotte Film Society’s primary mission is to bring foreign, classic and independent films to Charlotte that might not otherwise come here. Our belief in supporting alternative cinema continues to grow and expand through our Saturday Night Cine Club,  Back Alley Film Series, and Charlotte Film Lab  as well as other special film screenings and events offered throughout the year. In 2016, the Charlotte Film Society acquired a 501 (c)(3) non-profit status but was founded as non-profit from the beginning.

Additional support for the Charlotte Film Society is provided by Knight Foundation, which supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts.
