4th Annual Arkhaios Film Festival Postponement

Hilton Head, SC, USA -  Hilton Head Island has been hit hard by hurricane Matthew and the recovery is going to be a long process. We are grateful for the dedication of the Town of Hilton Head staff, of first responders and utilities employees working hard to restore our island paradise. However, the living conditions are not there yet for holding a festival next week.

Regretfully, we have to postpone the public screening of the Arkhaios 2016 Film Festival which was planned for October 20-22, 2016. A decision has not been made yet on the dates of the rescheduled festival.

Thank you for your patience as we face the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. We remain dedicated to bringing to you an educational event showcasing the discovery of past cultures gained from archaeological research, and illustrated by documentary films.
