Non-Fiction
  • October 19, 2018 - 4:00pm

Written and Directed by Olivier Assayas
Starring Guillaume Canet, Juliette Binoche, and Vincent Macaigne

(108 min.)

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 (Canet), and his successful-actor wife Selena (Binoche) adapting to the new-media landscape after one of Alain's long-time authors (Macaigne) produces another work of auto-fiction recycling his love affair with a minor celebrity. 

Non-Fiction first premiered at the 2018 Venice Film Festival before also being selected to screen at the Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals.

Fortress Presents and the Modern are thrilled to bring you 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. Kelly also frequently covers film related topics for Texas Monthly and his work has appeared in The New York Times, Salon and The Boston Globe.

You can read more about all eight films and view trailers and clips here. Purchasing a pass guarantees entry into all eight screenings as long as the pass holder arrives and claims their seat at least 15 minutes before show time. If pass holders have not claimed a seat at least 15 minutes before the screening is scheduled to begin, we reserve the right to resell that seat.

Pass holders will have priority admission in to all screenings, followed by individual ticket holders. Any reamining seats will then be sold to those waiting in the Rush Line. Advance sales for all screenings will end 2 hours before each screening. Anyone wishing to purchase a ticket to attend a screening later than 2 hours before it is scheduled to begin must wait in the rush line.
