The Film Forum started in the fall of 2005. It is dedicated to the critical discussion of films that not only delight us in the spectacular ways cinema most naturally does but also leave us puzzled, challenged, unsettled, or even irritated. The films we show cry out for discussion and have afforded us on many nights with the pleasure of intelligent and passionate conversation often even in the presence of the filmmakers themselves. The Film Forum’s Filmmakers on Campus Residency Program arranges week-long courses with award-winning film directors.

Director, Film Forum and Research Film Studio: Erika Kiss, University Center for Human Values

The events are made possible by the generous gift of Bert G. Kerstetter ’66
