The mission of the Rehoboth Beach Film Society is to promote cinematic arts and provide education and cultural enrichment for our community. As such, the Film Society screens films that cover a broad scope of issues and subjects. The Film Society does not assume a political, religious, or philosophical position on any film. The Board and staff recognize that not everyone will agree with all film choices but will appreciate the opportunity to view films not typically available in non-metropolitan areas.
