Disappearing Act IV : European Contemporary Cinema at U.S. Universities
PANEL DISCUSSION (10 April 2012)
As every year, the Disappearing Act program includes a panel discussion about presence of contemporary European films on U.S. screens.
The discussion will relate to all venues available for European cinema’s presence at universities, not only in university courses, but also through screening series organized by students and film societies functioning at universities; visiting filmmakers, and support provided to universities by various institutions. The festival this year also opens itself as an educational resource providing an opportunity to students of New York University’s cinema studies program to introduce several films and they will be present to share their experience.
With : Julia Solomonoff (Director and producer, teaching Film Direction at Columbia University’s Film Department), Anne Kern (Assistant Professor of Cinema Studies, SUNY Purchase), and Richard Suchensky (Assistant Professor of Film and Electronic Arts, Bard College)
