Inclusion: International Film Festival

Although we live in a country increasingly torn apart by anger and violence, this year’s festival looks around the world for models of inclusion. 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. 

Following each screening, faculty guests with expertise on the language, culture, and subject of the film join festival hosts Jennifer Fleeger, an associate professor of media and communication studies and film studies coordinator, and Andrew Jones, an assistant professor of French, for discussion.

All films are free and begin with a faculty introduction at 7 p.m. in Olin Auditorium. For questions about accessibility, please email jfleeger@ursinus.edu.
