Triangle Film Salon

TFSlogofinalwhite

The Triangle Film Salon is an annual series of lectures and presentations on the screen arts. Speakers range from film scholars to filmmakers, both visiting and in residence at UNC. The Salon facilitates an exchange of ideas in the Research Triangle and beyond. It aims to stimulate new ways of thinking about the relations between critical and creative work where cinema and other audiovisual media are concerned. All events in the series incorporate time for group discussion.

Free to students, faculty, and the public.
