anniehallposterThe Lamar French Circle and the communication department will host the International Film Fest III, every Wednesday in April at 6:30 p.m. in 103 Communication Building. Admission is free and open to the public.

The next film is “Annie Hall,” April 12, followed by “Subway,” April 19, and concluding with 1995’s “Before Sunrise,” April 26.

Clinton Rawls, LU broadcast programming manager and adjunct instructor, said the films have a streak of Americana through them, whether they be foreign films inspired by American films, or American films inspired by foreign films.

“The main purpose of the films is to expose our students and our audience to films they may not have encountered in their daily life,” Rawls said. “Cinema is the seventh art form and the visual language of filmmaking is universal. Watching films from other countries — realizing that we all have the same struggles and desires, seeing the influence that world cinema has on the films we may be more familiar with — makes the world smaller and enriches your life all at once.”
