January - April: Monthly Screenings
End of Semester Program: Scenesters Selects

Calling film fans ages 14 to 18!

Applications for the spring 2022 semester are now open for FilmScene’s film appreciation club, Scenesters—apply now!

Scenesters is FREE and open to public, private, and homeschooled high school-age students who have a passion for film. During the school year, Scenesters will attend monthly screenings, followed by dialogues, at FilmScene. From new releases to FilmScene’s popular film series, Scenesters will learn how to better understand, analyze and critique the films they see.

Scenesters will complete their semester-long experience by programming two evenings (one film per day) at FilmScene - presenting films they program as a team. At these screenings, Scenesters will introduce the film and then engage the audience in a dialogue after the film.

Returning Scenesters, please fill out the returning applicant from here!
