International Film Festival
With the enthusiastic support of Roanoke College professors and film specialists, the Department of Modern Languages at Roanoke College is excited to announce the third annual RCIFF (RC International Film Festival) in order to promote intercultural exchange, learning, and international cinema within the larger Salem and Roanoke communities and also at the College. We will be showing eight films which represent the foreign languages and cultures at Roanoke College during the weeks of February 17-Feb 26, 2021 with entirely virtual screenings.
This year’s theme is Social Justice and the Oscars. Given the current tense global climate and issues facing the world it is our hope to contribute to the conversations. Our goal is to put the community and different disciplines in meaningful dialogue with one another and to increase community awareness of international cultures.
“Door” Prizes!: Amazon Gift Cards will be given away each night! Please join us!
The year’s film festival is sponsored by Roanoke College and Roanoke Valley Sister Cities. Roanoke College sponsors include the Departments of Modern Languages, Anthropology, Sociology; Screen Studies, Gender and Women's Studies, and Peace & Justice Studies concentrations; in addition to the Student Activities Board, Student Government Association, French Club, as well as the Jordan Endowment, Office of Community Programs, Center for Studying Structures of Race.
