Our program is international in scope, emphasizing recent foreign and independent American films. All foreign films are shown in their original languages, with English subtitles. Film notes, with screen credits and some information about the film's background, are distributed at each screening.

Membership: Film Society membership this semester is $22 for the general public and $20 for students and senior citizens. Membership includes admission to all eight of the semester's screenings. When subscribing, please choose either the Friday or the Sunday program. Membership tickets can be purchased by mail or in person in at the Cinema Department office in SW-203B.

Single Tickets: Seats not sold by subscription will be available at the door from 7:00 pm on the evening of the screening. Single tickets cost $3.00.
