Now that summer is over, it's time to think about the great line-up of movies that you must see before the end of the year. And the best place to see these films is the popular fall KCET Cinema Series, which returns to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood on Tuesday, October 22 for nine weeks of thought provoking and engaging films.
The James and Paula Coburn Foundation will return as the sponsor for this season's KCET Cinema Series.
You'll enjoy eight noteworthy new films before their Los Angeles theatrical release, along with a classic James Coburn film celebrating the film career of this wonderful actor. All screenings are followed by a lively Q & A hosted by series' moderator Pete Hammond along with the film's filmmakers or talent.
We will have a stellar line-up of the best of Hollywood and Independent films, and the top award winners from film festivals. Films will include:
