Fear No Film 2017

Fear No Film 2017


Library Auditorium
Thu, June 22 - Sun, June 25

Fear No Film presents seven programs of short films demonstrating that our memories change each time they are recalled. Each screening explores a different range of MEMORY as a malleable construct, as we add and subtract emotional details with each re-telling. These short film screenings take audiences on a tour of filmmakers’ visions and unique stories told from around the world. 

All screenings, except for kids’ films shown in the Kid’s Art Yard, may contain adult content. All are free to the public.
