KET partners with LexArts, the Louisville Film society, and ITVS, the producer of the PBS series Independent Lens, to bring Community Cinema to Kentucky. This free monthly screening series shows films on topical issues from the Independent Lens series.
Community Cinema is active in more than 95 cities nationwide. Kentucky locations are Lexington and Louisville. To fulfill the goal of the project—for public TV stations to work with organizations and community members to encourage dialogue on important social issues—each screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
