"The Art of Film" Film Series

The Sixth Annual “The Art of Film” Series will continue the theme established in the last five seasons of showing critically acclaimed films from the U.S. and around the world. The films chosen demonstrate an array of techniques their makers use to create these works.  We are delighted to have Justin Peck, UW-Madison Film Studies graduate, returning this season to join us for the three films.  More dates may be scheduled, so keep checking back on our website for the latest information.  Audience members are invited to remain after each film for a lively discussion.

All films are shown in the Center’s Conference Room, adjacent to the Cafeteria. Use the Center’s south entrance (doors near the flagpole) and follow signs to the Conference Room.  Films are projected on a 9’ X 13’ screen with comfortable seating. Audience members are also welcome to bring their own folding chairs if they prefer.

Films begin at 7 p.m. There is no admission charged but we do suggest a $7.00 donation per person, and popcorn and beverages will be available.  

Questions about the series can be directed to info@shelllakeartscenter.org, or by calling 715-468-2414 during business hours.
