AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center Series & Events

Feb. 16-March 21. So many movies, so little time — but you can get caught up with some of the past year's very best with our series "2018: A Second Look." Most of these titles did not previously screen at AFI Silver; others are returning by popular demand. With this season's award nominations, year-end best-of lists and hindsight as your guide, take a second look at some of the past year's most distinctive films.
