Indie Films

Independent films have always drawn critical acclaim for their artistic nature and simple portrayal of the human spirit, but it has only been in the past few years that mainstream audiences have taken notice of these sometimes quirky and oftentimes beautiful films. With many of these films now catching the attention of the Golden Globes and Academy Awards, we are so grateful and excited that the Friends of the Guntersville Public Library have offered to sponsor this program so that the library can bring the community current and highly rated Indie films. Films begin at 7 PM in the library auditorium and light refreshments are provided.

Upcoming Schedule:

July 26: To Dust 
Sept. 27: The Public
