This calendar is reserved for non-commercial community events. What does that mean? Your event must be free or of nominal cost, available to anyone (although adult-only events are fine), and not for profit (but we do make exception for artists showing their work who would profit from any sales made and musicians hosting small-scale concerts). Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at [email protected] to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping make Huntsville a vibrant community!

About the films
Unfortunately, we can’t show all the films available on the tour and the selection process is challenging: there are so many good ones to choose from! Each night will feature a completely different set of films, covering a wide range of subject matter, with no particular overall theme. Both evenings will show a little over two hours worth of films, and follow a similar format: in the first half of the evening, you can expect one or two short films, followed by one or two longer features. After intermission (and door prizes) we’ll show a number of shorter films. There is a very slim chance that minor changes will happen in the list between now and January. We do consider this a “family friendly” show but a few films may have “coarse language” warnings. Consider yourselves warned!
