Text Box: We invite you to join

The Albuquerque Film Club is open to everyone of any age who enjoys watching movies on a big screen in the company of other film lovers and then sharing observations about what they have seen. All that is needed is the interest and an email address for notifications. This is a social rather than scholarly group, although some members know a lot about motion pictures while others wish to expand their appreciation.
The AFC will host movies at the Guild Cinema one weekend every two months, Saturday and Sunday matinees. After the screening, we invite everyone to join us to gab about movies and meet fellow film fans. Ticket prices for the matinees will be $5 per person.
Our purpose is to revive interesting films from silent classics to productions of the big studio era to intimate independent films of more recent years—comedies, dramas, film noir, fantasy, adventure. While most of the movies we screen will be English language, we shall include intriguing films from abroad. The films you attend will help choose future programs in the AFC series.

To join Albuquerque Film Club send your name, address and phone number via email to:

You will be added to our email list and receive notifications of upcoming AFC monthly screenings and other events. AFC/AVM does not share mailing lists with anyone, ever.

[Hotaru no haka] (Studio Ghibli, 1988)


Written and directed by Isao Takahata from a story by Akiyuki  Nosaka. Yoshifumi Kondo (Whisper of the Heart, 1995) was lead animator with score by Michio Mamiya and color by Michiyo Yasuda. Produced by Toru Hara.

Grave of the Fireflies is based on the 1967 Naoki Prize-winning, semi-autobiographical novel by Akiyuki Nosaka, a work well-known in Japan and Europe, but never translated into English. It is the story of fourteen-year-old Seita and his four-year-old sister, Setsuko, and their struggle to survive after being orphaned in the fire bombings of Kobe in the final months of World War II.
