Center for Faith & the Arts announces Cinema CFA, a series of independent films artfully reflecting the human spirit and bringing today’s social issues into focus. Movies are chosen to inspire reflection and following the film, viewers are invited to engage in conversation. Whether it’s youth arts programs, historical background for local plays, or perspectives on law enforcement, independent films offer plenty to think and talk about these days.
“The project’s intent is to engage people with issues that affect us all, through the beauty and power of film,” says CFA executive director Andi Shores Cantrell. “Coming together to bear witness, express concern and take action — this happens through art. An artfully rendered story is a window into ourselves and others. Sometimes that’s all it takes to create community, to inspire empathy.”
Cinema CFA provides opportunities to enjoy award-winning Art House Cinema as an alternative to Hollywood blockbusters typically available to Salisbury viewers. If a picture is worth a thousand words, art films surely speak volumes. Come and join the conversation. See what the movie and your viewing neighbors in the audience have to say.
“No Asylum: The Untold Chapter of Anne Frank,” sponsored by Cinema CFA, screens Feb. 16 at Tom Smith Auditorium Ketner Hall, at Catawba College, 2394 Yost Street.
Admission is free; donations are accepted.
