Watch an outdoor viewing of Truffle Hunters!

FilmScene and proudly announces FilmScene in the Park, an outdoor cinema built in partnership with the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department located at Chauncey Swan Park. The inaugural season of curated programming will include five acclaimed films from the last year and six family-friendly selections in partnership with the Summer of the Arts Free Movie Series.

Admission is free and open to the public. Seating will be first-come-first-served for all screenings, with movies beginning at sunset. Health and safety protocols will be in place including social distancing aided by painted markers on the lawn. The city-wide mask mandate will be enforced when moviegoers are not eating or drinking.


Deep in the forests of Piedmont, Italy, a handful of men, seventy or eighty years young, hunt for a rare and expensive white Alba truffle - which to date has resisted all of modern science's efforts at cultivation. They're guided by a secret culture and training passed down through generations, as well as by the noses of their cherished and expertly-trained dogs. They live a simpler, slower way of life, in harmony with their loyal animals and their picture-perfect land, seemingly straight out of a fairy tale.
