Stories of Reslience: International Film Festival

This year’s selections are all stories of courage and tenacity told by directors working in a variety of styles and genres, including animation, comedy, documentary, and drama. Featuring one film in each language taught at Ursinus, the annual International Film Festival brings together college students and community members to talk about how movies foster empathy and shape our thinking.

This year’s festival theme, Resilience, is embodied differently in each film, yet is a concept we’ve all been asked to embrace during the pandemic.

Following each screening, faculty guests with expertise on the language, culture, and subject of the film join festival hosts Matt Mizenko, an associate professor of modern languages, and Jennifer Fleeger, an associate professor of media and communication studies and film studies coordinator, for discussion.

All films are free and begin with a faculty introduction at 7 p.m. in Olin Auditorium.
