19th Annual International Film Series

 

Due to the risk that the corona virus poses to our community and beyond, we postponed this year's international film series that was to have taken place March 15-May 3. We hope you are able to join us if we are able to reschedule the series to later this year, and we look forward to seeing you when the threat of coronavirus has passed! In the meantime, please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions at info@belmontworldfilm.org.
