The Beaufort Film Society is a vibrant community of filmgoers and filmmakers who believe in the transformative power of cinema in all its glorious forms. The many year-round BFS benefits include advance ticket sales and discounts on screenings, services and products; discounts and advance enrollment for professional development classes and networking events; and invitations to special preview screenings. The Film Society presents the finest film exhibition, education and publications in the Lowcountry. If you truly love film, join us for a world of opportunity all year long.
The Beaufort Film Society's programs depend on Society Memberships. Ticket sales alone do not cover film and venue rental fees and other expenses.
Your society membership supports programs that:
* Inspire and enlighten audiences
* Shed understanding upon contemporary concerns
* Foster community support for worthy causes
* Delight the young at heart
In addition, we have partnered with Plaza Stadium Theatre in Beaufort to provide all BFS members with discounted ticket purchases with the presentation of your BFS Membership Card. Also, BFS members will receive a $1 discount at all screenings from the Independent Film Series presented by the University of South Carolina, Beaufort Center for the Arts and Emerging Pictures. Discount will be honored for cardholder only. Plaza Stadium Theatre offers all BFS members tickets at the Matinee price ($4).
When you join, you ensure the Film Society will continue to bring to our community critically acclaimed films that are not typically shown at our local commercial theaters. Your annual contribution will keep the Society going and growing, bringing the best in world cinema, documentaries and independent films to the Lowcountry.
The Film Society is a non-profit corporation.
