In 2006, the Charlotte Film Festival was created to give established and emerging filmmakers a weekend festival to showcase their works for industry peers and avid enthusiasts of independent film. In 2014, the Charlotte Film Festival was enveloped by Charlotte Cinema Arts, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Charlotte Cinema Arts is dedicated to creating a hub for cinematic history, digital arts, industry professionals, educational outreach, and to encourage opportunities for people to engage with cinema beyond the multiplexes.

Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery is a subtle documentary, primarily in German and French. Directed by Arne Birkenstock, the son of the lawyer for the Beltracchi family, the film interviews Wolfgang, Helene, friends, family and art figures. The film portrays Beltracchi and his wife, before serving their jail sentence of six years (Wolfgang) and four years (Helene). The film poses an underlying question: "If a piece of artwork gives you pleasure, isn't that more important than the signature at the bottom?" Essentially it seems that credibility is what is really being sold. Tickets are $10 for public, $8 for members, and $5 for students.http://bechtler.org/Learn/Events/details/modernism-film-beltracchi-the-art-of-forgery
