International Film Festival

The 3rd Annual International Film Festival kicks this Wednesday, Feb. 28th, with a showing of the Nueve Reinas at 7:00 P.M. in Doc Bryan Lecture Hall.  Nueve Reinas (Nine Queesn) is a 2000 Argentine crime drama centering on two con artists who decide to pull off a major scam in stamp collecting.  The film won 21 awards and is considered a classic of Argentina’s film history.

The screening Wednesday night is the first in a month-long celebration of films from around the globe.  The purpose of the festival is to foster an open-minded global cultural identity.

The film festival is sponsored by the Ross Pendergraft Library and the department of English & World Languages.  Principle organizers include Dr. Nelson Ramìrez, associate professor of Spanish, Coordinator of World Languages; Dr. Lowell Lybarger, multimedia librarian and instructor of music; and Philippe Van Houtte, systems librarian and instructor of French.
