Film festivals help audiences get acquainted with new films and exposed to different themes and messages. 

The Department of World Languages and Literature will be hosting a film festival that will begin on Feb. 29 in the Adanti Student Center Theater. 

Professor of French Luke Eilderts has worked on campus since 2012. 

“One of the cultural arms of the French embassy down in New York City has a film grant scheme where university programs can apply and receive funding to put on a film festival,” Eildert said. 

The film festival theme will be “blurring boundaries,” and they will showcase a plethora of movies that involve French culture.

“A lot of the films asks questions about what is fame and what is isolation,” Eildert said. 

All films are free to watch, and everyone is welcome to come. 

“All films begin at 6 p.m. in the Adanti Student Center, and they are not all on a Thursday night,” Eildert said. “To have all the films on a Thursday night would mean they wouldn’t be able to go if they wanted to.” 

There are six films that will be shown throughout the semester and end on Wednesday, May 1. 

“I am very grateful again for the support of the university for organizing payments,” Eilderts said. 

There will be speakers who introduce the films to add another element of French learning. 

“Would love to see as much participation as possible,” Eilderts said.
