Dare To See The World

Outer Banks Film Society

The Outer Banks Film Society is dedicated to screening independent films, movie classics, documentaries, world cinema, shorts, and the very best new releases to audiences in our community. 

Operating during the fall and spring seasons, the Outer Banks Film Society will offer an enriched film program that includes film-related speakers, filmmaker discussions, educational programs, and special events to enhance its mission and increase the public’s appreciation of fine cinema in all its forms.

Film societies give audiences varied and adventurous programming that cannot be found in local movie theaters.

Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the full screening schedule and film details.

How do I join the Film Society?

The Outer Banks Film Society was created to foster a community that appreciates the art of film. Unlike purchasing a ticket to go see a movie at the local theater, you join the Outer Banks Film Society through an annual or seasonal membership. With an annual membership, a member gets twelve films, plus extra events that are only open to members. Seasonal memberships for fall and spring offer six films each season. Please note that the Outer Banks Film Society has a certain number of memberships available due to seating capacity at the venue.

The film society will provide special film retrospectives, interesting discussions, and social events for members. 

All films will be screened at Dare Arts in Manteo.

 *** Memberships for fall 2023 through spring 2024 are sold out. We are so grateful for the amazing interest and support of this new endeavor. Stay tuned for news about 2024-2025.
