Thank you, to all our patrons who participated in the season selection survey. We are tallying the reponses and getting show rights.

Donate to Foreign Film



We are proud to offer 14 foreign films for one very low subscription price. However, providing this program – film licensing fees along with mailing and labor cost – is increasingly expensive. 

To help us defray the cost of the program, and to ensure that we can keep the subscription price low, we are seeking additional support from patrons who are able to chip in. Donations can be made online or by mail.

Make out a check to “UW-Parkside”, write “FFS” in the memo line, and mail it to:

UW-Parkside Foreign Film Series
900 Wood Road
Kenosha, WI 53141 

Please, no cash donations.

We understand that patrons may need to see a film at an alternative time. Switching to a different showtime is allowed and under normal circumstances will be accommodated; it requires no prior notice, but patrons are encouraged to switch to our least crowded screenings if possible, Saturday 8 pm and Sunday 5 pm.

Admission is based on season subscription only. Tickets are not available for individual films, but at $2 per film, a season pass is an outstanding entertainment bargain. In addition, all season ticket holders receive three free guest passes.

We recommend that you order your season tickets as soon as possible. Our most popular show times (Thursday 7:30 pm, Friday 7:30 pm, and Saturday 5:00 pm) have sold out for a number of years running.

Purchase Season Subscription Online

The UW-Parkside Foreign Film Series does not provide ratings generated by the Motion Picture Association of America. Many foreign films have not received ratings from the MPAA, and the rating system itself may not reflect the sensibilities of our patrons.

For FFS patrons who are interested in taking children to one of our films, we recommend that they visit kids-in-mind for more information about a film's violence, sex, and profanity content. This site, however, does not include films that have not received a MPAA rating. In those cases where MPAA ratings are not available we encourage patrons to read reviews.

All films in this year's program have been linked to an external review. Patrons who would like to read alternative reviews are encouraged to visit online review search engines. Here are three online resources that we recommend:

Internet Movie Database Movie Review Query Engine  Rotten Tomatoes
