SFS announces fall lineup
The Shepherdstown Film Society is pleased to announce its fall 2011 series.
This season continues the partnership with the Scarborough Society of Shepherd University. This partnership gives the Shepherdstown Film Society the financial support it needs to maintain its commitment to show free films for Shepherd students and faculty as well as the Shepherdstown community.
Five films will be presented, starting on Sept. 2 and running through Nov. 18. Four films set in four countries comprise the fall theme “Around the World in Four Films.” The fifth film complements the Shepherd University Appalachian Heritage Writer-in-Residence program.
Except for Monday, Sept. 26, all films will be shown on Fridays. All showings are at 7 p.m. in Shepherd’s Reynolds Hall. As with all the society’s films, admission will be free and each showing will be followed by a discussion. An opening night reception at The Men’s Club will kick off the series from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 2.
Sept. 2: “My Life as a Dog”
Sept. 16: “Disgrace”
Sept. 26: “Appalachia: A History of Mountains and People, Part Four: Power and Place”
Oct. 28: “Departures”
Nov. 18: “Rabbit-Proof Fence”
