Upcoming Features


Free Solo
October 19: Free Solo, 6pm West Cape May Borough Hall
The solo climb of 3,200 foot El Capitan in Yosemite by Alex Honnold is chronicled in this Academy Award Winning documentary.  Honnold climbs without a rope making his feat all the more startling with cinematography that brings the viewer there.

The Gospel According to Andre
November 8: The Gospel According to Andre, 6pm West Cape May Borough Hall
André Leon Talley has been a fixture in the world of fashion for so long that it’s difficult to imagine a time when he wasn’t defining the boundaries of great style. This film takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to become one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times.This film draws fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from the most glamorous moments in fashion history with André’s poignant reflections on his life and career, The Gospel According to André is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture.

King in the Wilderness
December 14: King in the Wilderness, 6pm West Cape May Borough Hall
Chronicling the last three years of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., this film shines a light on the man, his commitment to peaceful protest and his philosophical struggles.  He was seen as weak by the Black Power Movement and irresponsible by Lyndon Johnson.  But can we see who he was, really?

Please stay tuned for dates, times and more on these upcoming films that we will be screening.

We want audiences in southern New Jersey to be able to see outstanding films, and we want developing filmmakers to be able to get the information and training that they need.  We do three things to make that happen. We run a Film Festival, we run a Film Camp for teenage filmmakers in June, and we show films in Cape May throughout the year. In 2016 we also ran a one-week Film School for adults. CLICK HERE to see the film we made.

 


THE CAPE MAY FILM SOCIETY IS COMMITTED TO MAKING ITS PROGRAMS AND FACILITIES ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE.


Our programs are made possible in part by a grant administered by the Cape May County Culture & Heritage Commission, from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
