The mission of the Fountain City Film Society is to create a community of individuals who appreciate cinema and gather on a regular basis to watch and discuss the kinds of films that rarely screen in Columbus, Georgia. The FCFS is not a film appreciation class or based on the idea that the members are an audience who should be lectured to during the meetings.
The goal is to facilitate the friendly exchange of opinions and aide in the analysis of cinema as an art form. Member participation and a diversity of viewpoints are essential to the continued success of the society. Art is inherently subjective, and everyone has their own personal aesthetic that determines their likes and dislikes. Through the sharing of these perspectives, we expand our understanding and appreciation of the art form we love.
