The Society

The Bay Area Film Society was founded in the winter of 1997 by a small group of film lovers desperate for more films. We kicked off with “The Full Monty” at the local historical society on a snowy February night, not knowing if anyone would show. We sold out. We’ve been showing films ever since.

For our 2016-2017 season, we will be screening films at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center in Ashland. We show one to two films per month from September through April. Please join us in enjoying great cinema. And while you are here check out our BAFS Blog to find movie trailers, up to date information, special events and lots more.

See you at the movies.
