Global Film Series

The Global Film Series at NC State is a collaborative initiative to bring a variety of international and globally-focused films to campus. Interdisciplinary partners across campus select films from current releases, documentaries and classics highlighting the joys and struggles of the global community in which we live. These films also provide a venue for faculty, staff, and students to share their global experiences and expertise with a wider campus and community audience. All films feature an academic introduction and an opportunity for reflection at the film's conclusion.

The Global Film Series is presented by the Office of Global Engagement and NC State University Libraries. All films are free and open to the community.

Given the current coronavirus pandemic, we are reenvisioning the format of the Global Film Series for the Fall 2020 season. Please check back soon for updates.
