Curiosities Shorts Fest 2Curiosities is a ‘book club’ for those of us who are wary of a cover-to-cover commitment but still want to meet up and talk about interesting stuff with fellow lifelong learners. Each session meets once a week for four consecutive weeks, discussing material ranging from podcast episodes to articles to mini-documentaries. Our next installment focuses on short films, and will run October 20 – November 10, meeting on Thursdays from noon–1 p.m. via Zoom.

Curiosities Shorts Fest
Oct, 20–Nov. 10 | Thursdays, 12–1 p.m. via Zoom

Join us as we explore short films from across the globe, spanning a range of genres. In true Curiosities style, each week’s selections will be paired with additional materials (podcasts and short readings) to enhance our experience and understanding of the films. All films come from the library’s Kanopy collection and can be watched on your own at home; we’ll meet weekly via Zoom to discuss.

The four-week series will culminate with a public viewing party in November, which participants will have a chance to help curate. Register here for Curiosities Shorts Fest

Curiosities sessions are open to students, faculty, staff and community members alike. Students may be eligible to earn co-curricular credit for participating – ask your instructor or email to find out more!
