Films in the Forest

We are in the process of updating/adding the 2023 line up of films. If you are interested in sponsoring a film please email referencing Films in the Forest.

TICKETS will be available online before the start of our season in late May … thank you for your patience and understanding as we transition to a new ticketing system and make necessary upgrades to our website.

Films in the Forest is a series of first-run movies, classic feature films, and documentary film screenings on the outdoor stage of the Forest Theater in Carmel. Starting just after sunset on the Big Screen, we often feature local and student film maker nights, offering our community a preview of the diverse talent in our region; an introduction to the up and coming directors, cinematographers and actors that will grace the stages and screens of the world.

Films in the Forest will run with dates interspersed between the stage plays from May thru July at the Forest Theater and possibly late-July through December, typically on Friday’s/Saturday’s at the Carmel Youth Center or Carmel High School Performing Arts Center. Proceeds from all of our films and special events go to support our ongoing programs and scholarships. Please check back often for updated show times and ticket information.

If you are a local film maker interested in being included in our lineup, please send us your info for consideration…. Film proposal in the subject line to
