Just like books, film has the power to inform and inspire.
Each month at the Columbia Public Library, we offer a free screening of a thought-provoking documentary to help our community delve deeper into contemporary issues. Through this series, we frequently show films that have been celebrated by the True/False Film Fest as well as other highly-acclaimed film festivals. We also partner with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series, to bring you the most relevant and groundbreaking documentaries of the year.
Mark your calendars now with our upcoming film screenings. Better yet, sign up for our email newsletter so that you receive reminders for upcoming programs directly in your inbox!
