Film Screening
CEU docs
Friday, May 29, 2020, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

For the past four years we have hosted semester-end screenings of the exceptional documentary work produced by CEU students in filmmaking courses supported by the CEU Library’s Mirabaud Media Lab, which are part of the curriculum of the advanced certificate program in Visual Theory and Practice. Please join us for this special event, our last screening at our Budapest campus, and our first (and hopefully last) to be hosted online. We will be presenting the work of the winter semester course Visual Anthropology and Ethnographic Filmmaking.

The screening will last about one hour and be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers right after, which will be hosted on Zoom. Audience members are encouraged to join the Q&A to ask questions in person.
