Join us for this special screening of short (5-10 min) student documentaries produced in courses supported by the CEU Library's Mirabaud Media Lab, followed by a Q&A and reception with the filmmakers.
The evening features work from the Documentary Filmmaking for the Social Sciences and Humanities course, as well as films from the Visual Grammar course running for the first time this year. These courses make up part of the curriculum for the new Visual Theory and Practice Advanced Certificate, offered this year as a pilot program.
This event is co-hosted and co-sponsored by the CEU Library, the Visual Studies Platform, the Nationalism Studies Program and the CEU Weekly.
