The goal of the Roycroft Campus Film Society is to provide high quality art and foreign films followed by insightful discussion on a monthly basis. The Society currently presents a film the second Sunday of every Month (unless otherwise stated).

The Roycroft Campus Film Society

A Short History

In 1998, a group of local film enthusiasts formed an organization which they named The Aurora Art Films Society (AAF). It’s mission, to bring to East Aurora N.Y., quality foreign and independent arts films.  Following screenings, a dinner and discussion at the Roycroft Inn allowed for members to interpret and analyze the films. In 2009, the AAF worked with the Aurora Historical Society on fundraising efforts to restore the original Margaret Evans Price murals that had been removed from the theatre in 1950.  Once restored, the murals were returned to the theatre and are currently on display.  In mid-2011, the AAF asked the Roycroft Campus Corp. about a possible collaboration between the two organizations. The new partnership renamed the group the Hubbard Film Society (HFS). After Elbert Hubbard and his son, Elbert II, who brought film to the area and helped in the construction of the Aurora Theater. In 2015 the name was changed to the Roycroft Campus Film Society, to more clearly represent that we are, indeed, a division of the Roycroft Campus. In March of 2023, we celebrated our 25th anniversary of inception and passed our 200th film screening. This included films from 33 different countries. The Society looks to continue to expand in both the viewing and education of quality cinema.
