Film Streams

Film Streams is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the cultural environment of the Omaha-Council Bluffs area through the presentation and discussion of film as an art form. Open 7 days a week, Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater hosts four principal programs: (1) First-Run Films  — American independents, documentaries, and foreign films making their theatrical premiere in Omaha and the surrounding region; 2) Repertory Selections — classic films, themed series, and director retrospectives, featuring works from throughout the history of cinema; (3) Community Development — partnerships with other nonprofits and community groups on film-based events that speak to their missions and programming; and (4) Arts in Education for area high school students. In addition, we present a variety of Special Programs complementing each of the aforementioned areas, including Q&A screenings with visiting filmmakers and a new Local Filmmakers Showcase celebrating the work of area artists.
