Film Studies

International Film Festival 2018


The International Film Festival (IFF) screens one film in each of the six languages taught at the college. We invite members of the community to join students, staff, and faculty to discuss the film and enjoy delicious snacks following each screening. This year’s IFF theme, Queer Cinema critiques “normative” concepts of gender and sexuality as it represents and celebrates the lives of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer, gender-fluid, or questioning. Refreshments and discussion follow each screening. Each film begins at 7 p.m. in Olin Auditorium on the dates listed below. Questions?
