Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series
MONTHLY // JUNE – SEPT
2023 Films TBA
The Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series celebrating the cross-cultural potential of documentary filmmaking through FREE monthly community screenings and discussions with filmmakers. We are dedicated to presenting films produced and directed by local emerging filmmakers whenever possible.
In 2020 and 2021, the screening series moved to the Greenville Drive-In Outdoor Cinema as an adaptation due to the pandemic. You can view last summer’s film program here. This year, the film program is back in Basilica Hudson’s North Hall screening room.
We believe that the shared experience of watching film on the big screen is truly transformative. It has the power to connect individuals and inspire movements that shape our communities on a local and global sale. Basilica has hosted Robin McKenna, Deirdre Fishel, Albert Maysles, Daniel McCabe, Stephanie Wang-Breal, the Safdie Brothers, John Waters, Jon Bowermaster, Barbara Hammer, Kidlat Tahimik, Marie Losier, Theo Anthony, Charles Atlas, Deirdre Fishel, and many others.
Youth Film Programs
Basilica’s film and media program has also included monthly free Sunday family matinees. Our youth film programs have been produced in partnership with YouthFX, the Hudson Area Public Library, and the New York International Children’s Film Festival. Once again in 2021, the girls of Perfect Ten after-school program in Hudson will manage the box office for our drive-in screenings, and be integral to instructing attendees on COVID-19 safety protocols.
