Film Genre Festival

This Year’s Genre: Science Fiction!

September 26 – October 31, 2017 on Tuesdays at 5:00pm

Art and Design Building, Room 120

 

The Science Fiction Film Fest is an opportunity to watch film professors’ selections of their favorite sci-fi flick, and to hear them discuss some relevant elements of production and meaning.  This is mostly for entertainment; however, some professors offer extra credit for attendance and a short paper.

 

Screenings are free! Sponsored by the Film Studies Program & Department of Lang. & Lit.  Contact: Dr. Jill Franks, franksj@apsu.edu
