BNF Cinema Arts Project (BNF-CAP)

Beyond Normal Films is pleased to announce the implementation of the BNF Cinema Arts Project.  This initiative is in response to the expanded mission of BNF to offer greater support to the cinema arts in the community.  The mission statement now includes: provide cultural and educational activities in support of the cinema arts in Bloomington-Normal and Central Illinois.  

The Cinema Arts Project Fund, administered for BNF by the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation, provides a permanent funding base and the framework for an ongoing commitment to cinema arts awareness, education, and creativity--large and small--within the community.  

BNF-CAP Projects.  Here is a list of past and upcoming BNF-CAP projects that Beyond Normal Films has sponsored in whole or in part.

  • Pre-movie Presentation with performance  (e.g., Orchestra of Exiles )
  • Ebert documentary & unveiling of BNF’s own maquette for “Life Itself”
  • Asian Film Festival in the Spring of 2015:  (Completed in April 2015)
