Finding love can be hard enough for anyone, but for those with an
autism spectrum disorder, the challenges may seem overwhelming. The
disorder can jeopardize the core characteristics of a successful
relationship — communication and social interaction. Filmed in a highly
personal style, Matt Fuller’s Autism in Love offers a warm and stereotype-shattering look at four people as they pursue and manage romantic relationships. Learn more about the film.

future. Discussion moderators for the local screening were Bryan Lee, Football Coach at Carbondale Community High School, and Kathy Renfro, Director of the Carbondale Park District. Learn more about the film.
A new revolutionary culture emerged in the turbulent 1960s, and the
Black Panther Party was at the vanguard. Weaving together a treasure
trove of rare footage with the voices of a diverse group of people who
were there, Stanley Nelson tells the vibrant story of a pivotal movement
that feels timely all over again. Learn more about the film.
Peace Officer by Scott Christopherson and Brad Barber | April 2016
The increasingly tense relationship between law
enforcement and the public is seen through the eyes of someone who's
been on both sides: a former sheriff who established Utah's first SWAT
team, only to see the same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial
standoff 30 years later. Now a private investigator, Dub seeks the truth
in this case and other officer-involved shootings. Learn more about this film.
