About the International Cinema Series
The International Cinema Series presents critically acclaimed and important films from around the world (including independent and artistic American films) every week in the Miller Auditorium at Eckerd College. We show restorations of honored classics as well as contemporary films that have captured the attention of critics at recent film festivals. We screen documentaries, narrative feature films, as well as the occasional experimental work. In a given semester you might find an Asian horror flick alongside arthouse European cinema or experimental features and cutting edge critical documentaries from just about anywhere you can imagine. While tending to avoid "blockbuster" films of the sort you might find at the local movieplex, the series aims to create a balance between artistry and innovation in cinema, on the one hand, and appealing and accessible styles and important subjects, on the other.
