Film Series & Community Engagement

KIPCOR Film Series


Three to four times per year, KIPCOR screens a free film for the general public.  Films are typically shown on Sunday afternoons in the Luyken Fine Arts Center, Krehbiel Auditorium, at Bethel College.  KIPCOR screens independent films that are socially or politically relevant; and that foster critical thinking and open the door to dialogue.  The main event is followed by a question and answer session with a recognized expert on the relevant topic.

Past films have tackled issues including climate change, the militarization of local police forces, our criminal justice system, and the refugee crisis.  We welcome your suggestions for future screenings!
