French Film Series

The Department of Languages & Philosophy at Southern Utah University is committed to providing students with exceptional educational and cultural opportunities. We believe students should be exposed to the art, cultures, cinema, and history of the languages they study. With these goals in mind, we have supplemented our French curriculum with an annual French Film Festival every year since 2007. Four times, the French Program has applied for and won a grant from FACE (French American Cultural Exchange) Tournées Festival. Other years, we have raised the funds ourselves, so that we could pay the rights to show the films.

These events are free and open to the public and serve as a forum for discussion among students, faculty, staff and community members. Each year, we invite faculty members with pertinent areas of expertise to introduce each film, thus emphasizing interdisciplinary aspects of cinema and film as an intellectual and cultural experience. Films are shown in their original languages with English subtitles.
