Fortress Presents and the Modern will present the return of Modern Cinema with Christopher Kelly. From 2004-2014, Modern Cinema brought some of the most prestigious titles in film to Fort Worth for their first - and some times only - North Texas screenings.

This year's event will once again bring some of the best films of the year before they are available in theaters. Each screening will be introduced by Kelly, former film and culture critic for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and currently Managing Producer for Entertainment for New Jersey Advance Media.

A total of eight films will screen throughout the weekend. Featured films include:

  • A Private War- Rosamund Pike stars as legendary war correspondent Marie Colvin in director Matthew Heineman's fact-based film that follows Colvin and photojournalist Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) to the front lines of conflicts around the globe, culminating in a fateful trip to the besieged Syrian city of Homs in 2012.
  • Boy ErasedBoy Erased tells the story of Jared (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a gay conversion therapy program - or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends and faith.
  • Chef Flynn - Chef Flynn McGarry opened a supper club in the living room of his California home at nine years old, using his classmates as line cooks and serving a seasonal foraged tasting menu to wide-eyed Los Angelenos. As the years pass, Flynn grows both as a chef and teenager, eventually outgrowing his family kitchen and his mother's camera.
  • Everybody Knows - Academy Award winner Asghar Farhardi (A Separation, The Salesman) directs Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem in this layered, psychological drama about a family wedding interrupted by a shocking crime and some long buried secrets.
  • Never Look Away - Set in post-war East Germany, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s humanist drama follows the lives of a doctor and an artist, both struggling to reconcile their personal aspirations with their country’s politics.
  • Wildlife - 14-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould) is the only child of Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal) - a housewife and a golf pro - in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job - and his sense of purpose - he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves.
  • Non-Fiction - French auteur Olivier Assayas probes the promises and pitfalls of art in the age of digital communication in this comedy about Alain, a Parisian publisher (Guillame Canet), and his successful-actor wife Selena (Juliette Binoche) adapting to the new-media landscape after one of Alain's long-time authors (Vincent Macaigne) produces another work of auto-fiction recycling his love affair with a minor celebrity.
  • Cold War - Cold War is a passionate love story between a man and a woman with different backgrounds and temperaments, fatally mismatched and yet fatefully condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, the couple is separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate – an impossible love story in impossible times.
