The Communication and Media Studies Department hosts a monthly film series on the first Thursday of every month.* Each academic year, we explore a new theme. Films will come from a variety of time periods, genres, and cover a wide range of topics. The events are free and open to the public. We encourage members of the community to join us for any and all of these events!
