The mission of the film society is to cultivate film culture in the greater Burlington area through the creation of an organizational mechanism for cineastes; by working with area theaters, arts presenters, granting organizations, educational institutions, and businesses to generate opportunities for theatrical screenings of films; and by increasing opportunity for engagement with and appreciation of cinema.
Launched in 2012 by Barry Snyder and Eric Ford as a resource for local film events, meet-ups and an advocacy platform for cinema. In February 2014 BFS joined the Film Foundation becoming its primary year-round cineaste program. Monthly screenings of theatrical release films are held at Main Street Landing Film House, as well as film meet-ups at local theaters and community cinema discussions.
