The Kentlands Film Society Invites you to check out 10 Favorites from our 15 years

The Kentlands Film Society was formed by a group of neighborhood volunteers fifteen years ago, to bring a five-film season of quality, art house, often foreign, films to the Gaithersburg Arts Barn every year. With the support of the Kentlands Community Foundation, we have successfully carried out this mission. So, grab your TV remote or portable device and see what films you might enjoy watching. Some may also be available on iTunes, Google Play, Hulu, Vudu, etc., so check your other streaming services.
