Film Series Receives Grant from Missouri Arts Council

August 26, 2013

The Lindenwood University Film Series has received a grant of $3,157 from the Missouri Arts Council to support the series in the coming year.

Dr. David Brown, professor of philosophy and director of the film series, said the series received a score of 7.55 out of 10 from the council, an improvement over last year’s score of 6.95, which determines the amount of the grant. The series consists of screenings throughout the year of classic, educational, or thought provoking films in the Young Hall Auditorium. Films are free with a Lindenwood ID card and $5 (cash only) for the general public.

“In showing films that have artistic merit and intellectual value, we seek to further Lindenwood University’s commitment to ‘values-centered programs leading to the development of the whole person–an educated, responsible citizen of a global community’ (Lindenwood’s Mission Statement),” according to the series mission statement. “The Lindenwood Film Series is a way of fulfilling this commitment for our campus and for the community at large.”

The Missouri Arts Council is a division of the Missouri state government and provides grants to nonprofit organizations to increase participation in the arts in the state, grow Missouri’s economy using the arts, and strengthen the state’s education through the arts.

Brown credited a variety of staff members, graduate assistants and Work-and-Learn students for the council rating that garnered the grant. For more information on the Lindenwood University Film Series, including the fall 2013 schedule, visit
