Oct 8: Gather

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. When Basilica is able to reopen, films will continue to be hosted in its 150-seat North Hall cinema.

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

Under normal circumstances, Basilica’s film and media program also includes 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.
