Charlotte Film Lab is the newest series which aims to provide a viewing ground for innovative, artistic and truthful cinematic works as well as an intimate conversation with the creators of the films in a unique setting built around their work screened. Supporters of the Saturday Night Cine Club will love the opportunity to be able to speak with the films’ creators to find out what motivated their decisions and to hear tales of the production not seen in the final works. Fans of the Back Alley Film Series will also enjoy seeing  a wide array of truly independent films, often shown by the directors who travel with their films in tow and share their story one crowd at a time.

Films screened range from documentaries to all narrative genres, as well as short and feature-length timeframes. Filmmakers looking for a unique screening environment with an attentive and supportive crowd have found a great screening home in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the series hopes to continue building relationships with the filmmakers who pass through in their future work and beyond.
