The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s (RBFS) mission is to celebrate the power of visual storytelling, showcasing independent films and creating transformative experiences for people of all-ages and diverse backgrounds here in the mid-Atlantic region. The Film Society cultivates and shines a light on the next generation of filmmakers which benefits the community and raises awareness on the positive impact of cinema as a performance art. The organization values integrity, accessibility and accountability. The new SILVER level ($200/annually) provides 12 FREE tickets to CAT This Week films (first-run films; Wed – Sun), year-round discounts to Alternative Programs (The MET Live in HD and others), Special Events and Festival priority seating. The SILVER PLUS ONE package ($325/annually) provides the same benefits for you and a guest such as a partner or spouse.
