Cultural Film Series Celebrates Launch of Institute for Global Interdisciplinary Studies

Free Admission for Students With Valid I.D.; Connelly Center Cinema Completely Revamped

The Cultural Film Series is pleased to celebrate the launch of the new Institute for Global Interdisciplinary Studies this semester. Films featured this spring include: Infernal Affairs, The World of Apu, House of Fools, Metropolis, Children of Heaven, Warrior Queen, Ringu, The World According to Shorts, La Promesse, and Paris, Je T’aime.

In addition, the Connelly Cinema has been completely revamped, with new projection and sound systems installed.

Further, the series will now be free for students with valid University I.D. for the first time since the series began almost 30 years ago.

John O'Leary, Ph.D., director of the Cultural Film Series and an assistant professor of communication, said, "This will be a very exciting semester for the film series. I hope faculty members will encourage their students to take advantage of the series. I am especially excited about our slate of speakers this semester. One has just published a book on the horror film, and another is a Hollywood producer and writer."

For more information on the series, including upcoming films along with their dates, times, and locations, please visit the Cultural Film Series online.
