Documentary Film Festival

Wednesday, April 19, 7:00 p.m., Center for Visual Arts (CVA) 147

The Documentary Film Festival, sponsored by the ISU Documentary Project, is a venue to present student made documentaries. The festival celebrates the hard work of the students and faculty involved in the project and allows students to present films addressing socio-political issues in society today. Each year, the ISU Documentary project invites an accomplished documentarian to present their work.

Documentaries are a powerful tool that can be used in the struggle for social change. The Documentary Film Festival is a fulfilling experience for students that have a passion for documentary or just want to support others’ efforts for social change.  Come on out and do your part in changing the world by watching some documentaries!
