Film has been a very important part of the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts since its inception. Starting with independent film screenings, building into filmmaking workshops, an artist residency, and then with the birth of the Flatland Film Festival, we have seen a program begin to develop and grow. Cinematic Art is a part of our everyday life and stories told through this medium can impact society and humanity as a whole.
We continue to bring year round film screenings that will entertain and excite audiences in the region and provide an arena for education and meaningful discussion. The mission of Flatland Film is to cultivate an appreciation of Independent Film, video and moving-image expression. We strive to serve the citizens of this community and encourage artists working in this mode of expression
