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 fourth 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 that represent foreign languages and cultures at Roanoke College during the weeks of February 16-Feb 27, 2022 with in-person screenings. Masks will be required!
This year’s theme is Animals. Our goal is to put the community and different disciplines in meaningful dialogue with one another and to increase community awareness of international cultures.
The year’s film festival is sponsored by Roanoke College, Roanoke Valley Sister Cities, the Grandin Theatre, and the Taubman Museum of Art. Roanoke College sponsors include the Jordan Endowment; Office of Community Programs; Fintel Library; Departments of Modern Languages, English, and Religious & Philosophy; the Anthropology, Screen Studies, and Peace & Justice Studies concentrations; and Student Activities Board.
