Film School Series


Masterworks, special guests and connections to Dartmouth.

These classics, rare gems, alumni work and shows with live guests are programmed in direct collaboration with Dartmouth classes, student groups and campus centers. This term, the Dartmouth Film Society has selected four titles they believe are worth a second look: The Wizard of OzCinema ParadisoButch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Silence of the Lambs. The DFS continues to meet weekly to discuss the films at the Hop and offer programming ideas—but that is just the beginning of how we partner with student groups!

Nearly all of the films in our slate are chosen with connections to Dartmouth courses in mind, and the connections range from silent cinema (Be Natural) to black love (Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am) to sustainability (The Biggest Little FarmHoneyland), to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (Tel Aviv on Fire). The highlight of the term will be a collaboration with the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and the Leslie Center for the Humanities to present The Silence of Others, with director Almudena Carracedo in person!

We believe film has the power to broaden and deepen perspectives, spark creativity and bring people together in dialogue about important issues. While we can't accommodate every request every term, we strive to engage the entire campus throughout the year. If you are a student or professor and have ideas for films that connect to your course or group, please feel free to email [email protected].
