The Alan Lutkus
International Film Series
Sponsored by the Provost and the IFS Committee,
with the collaboration of SUNY Geneseo faculty and friends.

The International Film Series (IFS) was established January, 2003, in response to SUNY Geneseo's need for a venue solely dedicated to the screening of alternative films. The IFS's official inauguration program took place on April 24 with the presentation, screening and round table discussion (led by its filmmaker) of The Victory at San Salvador Atenco, Mexico, two 30-minute documentaries depicting the strength of the peasant movement that successfully halted the recent attempts of Mexico's government to displace residents in order to vacate land where it intended to build a new airport.

IFS's goal is to offer to students of SUNY Geneseo films and documentaries that emphasize diversity and multiculturalism, as well as a forum for open discussion after each presentation. It is hoped that nine Thursday evenings during each session, a film representative of a different cultural perspective will be shown. All films and documentaries are presented in Newton Hall 204 on a Thursday at 7:00 pm. For this semester's program and a description of scheduled films, please visit our Calendar of Events. If you are a member of SUNY Geneseo's faculty and would like to present a film, please read our Guidelines page.

We look forward to seeing you in Newton Hall this semester. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let us know.
