The second annual Films That Matter series teams up with the Atlanta BeltLine to present four films with human rights themes in September. The National Center for Civil and Human Rights joins with the Central Atlanta Progress/Atlanta Downtown Improvement District to make a cinematic contribution to Art on the BeltLine. Scheduled for successive Friday nights, the films and locations are:

Sep. 9: The Constant Gardener - Atlanta BeltLine corridor, Reynoldstown (next to H. Harper Station)
Sep 16: The Pursuit of Happyness - Washington Park
Sep. 23: Remember the Titans - Woodruff Park
Sep. 30: Philadelphia - Historic Fourth Ward Park

This year’s film locations include three parks and green spaces on the Atlanta BeltLine, giving guests an opportunity to enjoy the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine temporary art exhibit, including live performances before some of the films. The September 30 screening of Philadelphia will commemorate 30 years of the AIDS epidemic and will be presented in collaboration with the AIDS Memorial Quilt.
