Exploring Cultures through the Lens of Film

October 10, 2018 at 6:14 pm - 8:30 pm

Films captivate us as viewers, transporting us to different situations and places. We submerge in their stories and we get emotional. Films can help us to understand and empathize with the protagonist of the story. Sometimes we identify and relate to the plot and we become advocates, and sometimes we feel aggravated and want to leave the theater or we become hard critics. Films are an incredible source of intercultural interactions and learning.

Become part of Intercultural Atlanta’s event on “Exploring Cultures through the Lens of Film”! Our dynamic panelists will be speaking on their areas of expertise. Participants will have an opportunity to address various questions on film watching and cultures in addition to how to add films to their training routines.

JOIN US at this unique event!

Our panelists:

– Nsenga K. Burton, Ph.D – Professor at Emory Department of Film and Media Studies. Also founder & editor-in-chief of the award-winning news site the Burton Wire.

– Shellie Schmals – Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Film Programming Manager

– Christopher Minz – Georgia State University Ph.D. Candidate, Moving Image Studies
