A Movie You Haven’t Seen

Since its inception in 1999, Opening Nights has presented an annual “movie you haven’t seen.” Silent films, local creations, Oscar® nominees, and international film circuit delights—each film has added to the collective cinema experience in Tallahassee. Our selected film will be appropriate for all audiences unless otherwise expressed and will include a panel discussion with industry professionals. Presented collaboratively with the FSU College of Motion Picture Arts and The Torchlight Program, this year’s film is sure to inspire and entertain.
