ArtCentral FILM FESTIVAL: “More Than a Word”
April 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:40 pmFREE!
ArtCentral has partnered with The Northern Hills Rotary Club to create a film series that will benefit the community. Through this series, we use art as a tool – films in this case – to engage our community on specific topics that are relevant to both partnering organizations.
Following each film, the co-hosting organization will help facilitate a discussion about ideas presented in the film. Co-hosts for films are organizations in our community and will help us talk about how these issues relate to the Spearfish community. The co-hosts will also actively promote each film to their organization to increase awareness of the film series offerings.
All films are FREE! General Admission.
