Missing the Global Film Series? We invite you to join us for a virtual Global Film Series!

Staff from the Office of Global Engagement and the University Libraries select a family-friendly international film that is free and easy to stream online from home. One of our amazing NC State faculty provides an academic introduction, just like at our in-person series, which is posted to this page.
