I’m Pedro Doreste, a student of graduate Film and Media Studies at Emory University and editor of this blog. First of all, thank you for visiting! At Emory University, the Cinémathèque team has had a long-standing tradition of presenting free film screenings to the Emory community. The events usually attract a large, enthusiastic crowd looking to view films rarely shown in American theaters or simply to reconnect with celluloid heroes of old. This Fall – our most ambitious semester yet – we have decided to set up a blog to serve as your one-stop shop for all things Emory Cinémathèque! Here, we will be providing you with screening information for the upcoming semester’s films, as well as some historical background and analysis on the films themselves, obscure as some of them can be. A full list of our films can be found here, and you can watch our Fall 2014 trailer below:
Remember, it doesn’t matter if your a regular or a first-timer, your Cinémathèque experience doesn’t have to end when the lights come on! Just go to EmoryCinematheque.com after the movie to get your dose of facts, features, and analysis of the night’s film!
Interested in contributing your take on one of our films? Contact me at pedro [dot] doreste [at] emory [dot] edu for submission guidelines.
