AFF logo Black transp bkgrdThe Ackland Film Forum is a collaboration between the Ackland Art Museum and numerous departments at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill highlighting various aspects of the art of cinema and showcasing the aesthetic power of film. Art films, narrative films, and documentaries are chosen by UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and Ackland staff, often in connection with particular courses, campus-wide initiatives, or exhibitions.

The Ackland Film Forum is made possible by the generous support of Ruby Lerner.
