AFS January/February 2018 Calendar of Events is Live!

Agnes Varda's CLEO FROM 5 TO 7

AFS Signature and Specialty programs are now on sale through the end of February. There are many films to choose from: special series, old favorites, the best of new docs, and a visit from a filmmaking legend. You can see all the events here.

Bong Joon-Ho's MEMORIES OF MURDER

In January we present an Essential Cinema retrospective of the films of Bong Joon-Ho, all on 35mm except the brand new digital restoration of MEMORIES OF MURDER.

Agnès Varda

Then, in February, we present four of Agnès Varda's greatest films, including her newest, FACES PLACES and more.

Bette Gordon's VARIETY

Legendary filmmaker Bette Gordon will join us to present several of her films, including the groundbreaking 1983 independent classic VARIETY.

Terrence Malick's DAYS OF HEAVEN

Our SPIRIT OF '78 series will celebrate the 40th anniversary of pivotal classics DAYS OF HEAVEN, COMING HOME and MIDNIGHT EXPRESS.

Leos Carax' MAUVAIS SANG

The ongoing LATES series returns, with Sion Sono's new film ANTIPORNO, the outrageous horror farce BITCH, and classics by Carax, Almodovar and Rollin.


Our favorite film professor Caroline Frick, of the University of Texas and the Texas Archive of the Moving Image, will join us for a series called CLASSIC CHEMISTRY, which features some of the greatest examples of couple-chemistry of Hollywood's golden era.

James Bidgood's PINK NARCISSUS

Also, the HOMO ARIGATO series comes to the AFS Cinema for the first time in 2018, with the new ballroom culture doc KIKI and Queer Cinema classic PINK NARCISSUS.

Seijun Suzuki thinks you're going to like his surreal TAISHO TRILOGY

All this plus DOC NIGHTS, the cutting edge DEEP END series, the family friendly SUNDAY SCHOOL program, a Special OSCILLOSCOPE PICTURES RETROSPECTIVE, New restorations of films from Jacques Becker, Seijun Suzuki, and more, and just LOTS AND LOTS OF OTHER STUFF that you can't miss.
