Cultivate Cinema Circle (CCC) is an emerging movie screening series that aims to help foster film culture in the Buffalo area.

Not only does the CCC Facebook page keep its readers informed on what’s going on when it comes to important cinematic treasures, the group goes so far as to highlight those in the community that are doing their part to promote cinema in Buffalo. The group hosts happy hours, shows films, highlights local and international film news, and generally helps to keep readers informed on the ins and outs of the cultural significance of film.

The website showcases upcoming film screenings, tracks local film series and festivals, and acts as a bookmark for Buffalo cinematic adventures.
