Film

NCMA film programming consists of classic and contemporary short and feature-length films across genres, countries, and languages. The films we show promote diversity, represent the communities we serve, complement the Museum’s exhibitions and collection, and inspire, encourage dialogue, and promote a sense of belonging.
