Films on the Green is back this summer with an exciting lineup of international cinema and a new and vibrant visual identity inspired by movie theaters and electrifying city nightlife! The Conservancy is proud to support Films on the Green through our Community Arts Grants Program.

The festival’s 14th edition is centered on the theme From Page to Screen. Highlighting movies based on literature, this year’s lineup includes features that you can enjoy even if you haven’t read the book. All screenings shown with English subtitles.

On Friday, June 10th head to Arch Plaza at sunset for a FREE screening of Le Sommet des dieux (The Summit of the Gods) by Patrick Imbert (Courtesy of Netflix):

Were George Mallory and his companion Andrew Irvine the first men to scale Everest on June 8th, 1924? Only the little Kodak VPK camera they took with them might reveal the truth. In Kathmandu, 70 years later, a young Japanese reporter named Fukamachi recognizes the camera in the hands of the mysterious Habu Jôji, an outcast climber believed missing for years. Fukamachi enters a world of obsessive mountaineers hungry for impossible conquests on a journey that leads him, step by step, towards the summit of the gods.
