Charlotte Film Society

The Charlotte Film Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and creates communal experiences through cinema to inspire and celebrate what connects us as humans. Our commitment to this goal is exemplified by our operations at The Independent Picture House, including the annual Charlotte Film Festival, and throughout Charlotte area communities as we foster cultural connections through film. Founded in 1982, the Charlotte Film Society continues to serve as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a choice in moviegoing experiences.

The Charlotte Film Society’s primary mission is to bring foreign, classic, and independent films to Charlotte that might not otherwise come here. We believe Charlotte can support alternative cinema as well as cities half the size. As much as we love mainstream cinema, we also know there is another side to filmmaking.

In June of 2022, The Charlotte Film Society expanded its vision and opened The Independent Picture House. The community arthouse cinema operates 365 days out of the year, and is dedicated to screening independent, foreign, and local film. Our non-profit also manages the Charlotte Film Festival, Charlotte’s premiere annual film festival.
