Festival for film buffs
SAMRU highlights globe through the silver screen
Currently nearing the end of its second-annual event, the Students’ Association of Mount Royal University is back, putting on their International Film Festival. In partnership with the Cultural Mosaic Centre and the Film Students’ Society, they are screening influential and acclaimed films from around the world.
The festival intends to highlight global issues through a medium that is accessible to students.
Every Tuesday and Thursday since March 4, the festival has shown films on the second floor of Wyckham House from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Admission to the screenings is free and includes free popcorn.
The festival has already shown five films — including Waltz with Bashir (Israel) and Kinky Boots (Britain) — but if you’ve been missing out, it’s not too late. There are still three more screenings: Tsotsi (South Africa) on March 20, Rabbit Proof Fence (Australia) on March 25 and The Sea Inside (Spain) on March 27.
