NOTICE: In order to minimize health and safety risks from COVID-19 to our patrons, as of March 10, 2020, all public events at the Rubenstein Arts Center are CANCELED, and the building will remain closed to the public until further notice. In the meantime, we will be bringing Screen/Society programming into your home streaming environment, in our temporary new incarnation as "Stream/Society."

The Franklin Humanities Institute and Screen/Society deeply regret the zoom bombing that occurred during the post-film discussion of "Germany in Autumn" on Friday, September 11.  We categorically reject the antisemitic and sexist views expressed by those who sought to derail our event and intimidate and abuse our speakers and participants.  We are taking measures to implement stronger security plans for future public events.

Screen/Society provides ambitious and entertaining film programming for the Triangle community, specializing in regional theatrical premieres of global and independent art films and repertory programs, including international classics, Hollywood genre works, and director retrospectives. The free screenings will be streamed online for the near future, but normally would take place in the Rubenstein Arts Center's Film Theater, a 100-seat venue that projects archival 35mm, 16mm, and 4K Digital Cinema. Screen/Society is organized and programmed by Cinematic Arts at Duke's Hank Okazaki and Jason Sudak.
All screenings are free and open to the public.
