This is the third year that the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology has supported and happily participated in the Arkhaios Film Festival and we are just as excited as the first year.  As a member of the jury, I can testify that the quality of the Arkhaios films, both in cinematography and cultural content, continue each year to improve- and this year, they are outstanding. .....

The Coastal Discovery Museum is honored to be a partner in presenting the third annual Arkhaios Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Film Festival. The films selected for this festival tell both a local and a global story, inspiring us to look at the roots of our civilization and to better understand people from other cultures around the world.  This year’s films are also of such tremendous quality, that they really do bring both past and present cultures to life before our eyes......
