See international and independent films at Hodges Library
Moviegoers now have a chance to sample award-winning, first-run independent and international feature films that are unlikely to be screened elsewhere in Knoxville. The UT Libraries’ Film Movement Series will show sixteen films every Tuesday from August 30 to December 13 in the John C. Hodges Library Auditorium at 8 p.m. The film screenings are free and open to the public.
Although a few of the films are American-made, most hail from Europe, Australia, Africa, South America and Canada. Many have received accolades akin to Academy Awards in their home countries.
“The international flair of the Film Movement Series is an excellent opportunity to experience other cultures and styles of filmmaking,” Media Services Librarian Troy Davis said.
The Film Movement Series is just one of the many ways the UT Libraries is broadening its film collection and developing programming centered on the expanding medium of film.
The UT Libraries and the UT Cinema Studies program worked with Film Movement, a grassroots movement that provides access to the best foreign and independent films made each year, to bring these first-run films to the library at the same time they are released in theaters.
