Our 2019 Spanish Film Festival aims to screen the most recent and remarkable movies making their mark in the Hispanic world. The films portray current issues such as class struggles, political unrest, civil war, and the effects of media in contemporary society, among others. Screenings will be in Spanish with English subtitles and will be accompanied with a brief introduction to the topic at hand, and/or a Q&A with experts on the topic whenever possible.

We would like to thank the Pragda Spanish Film Club Grant, as well as the International Studies Department, for their support in this festival.
