By Staff | Oct 29, 2018


BIG ARTS will kick off its 22nd season of Monday Night Film on Nov. 5, which runs through March 25.

The popular film series has another fantastic line up of award-winning films handpicked from film festivals around the world by the dedicated volunteers on the BIG ARTS film committee. All films are shown in BIG ARTS Schein Hall at 7 p.m., followed by a moderated discussion in Phillips Gallery.

This year’s lineup features a wide array genres including documentaries, dramas and comedies. It includes films from the United Kingdom, Norway, Japan, Russia, Chile and Spain.

“We’re very excited about the variety of films being shown this season,” Visnja Gembicki, chair of the committee, said. “We love offering a forum for film buffs in our community to gather and see the types of films that you might only see in local theaters for an extremely limited run or not at all.”

The following films will be shown this season:

It’s a testament to the hard work put in by volunteers and staff.”
