Friday Film Forum


Third Fridays
6:00 pm

May 21:  The Sapphires

The Sapphires is a 2012 Australian musical comedy-drama film. In 1968, four young, talented Australian Aboriginal girls learn about love, friendship and war as their all-girl group The Sapphires travels to Vietnam to entertain the US troops.




The Third Friday Film Forum is a faith development opportunity that is both social and spiritual.  Watching these films and engaging in the discussion that follows, helps us educate ourselves, learn more about different circumstances, cultures or history, as well as provide criticism and/or commentary on events.

Columbine will continue its Film Discussion Forum with eleven movies each year, shown on the 3rd Friday of each month.  Please contact the series coordinator, Kathy Derrick, if you have a film to propose.  The film for the next month is selected at the end of the discussion for that month, from a blind selection of not more than 10 proposed film titles.

Until the end or easing of COVID-19 meeting restrictions, the films will not be shown at CUUC for members and friends, and the discussions will be held on ZOOM.

Most films are now shown on streaming services.
