Semester-end Student Documentary Screening
Join us for this special screening of short (5-10 min) student documentaries followed by a Q&A and reception with the filmmakers!
The evening will feature the exceptional work of students from CEU’s Historical Narratives and the Moving Image course. The event is also a celebration of the successful first year of courses offered through CEU Library’s Mirabaud Media Lab. Many of the courses were conducted in partnership with the Visual Studies Platform at CEU and have been co-hosted by various departments across the university.
This event is co-hosted and co-sponsored by the CEU Library, the History Department and the CEU Weekly.
