The University of Massachusetts Boston Film Series is an initiative of the Chancellor's Office. This monthly series, which is free and open to the public, showcases innovative and thought-provoking filmmakers and their work.
The UMass Boston Film Series pays particular attention to emerging and iconic directors of acclaimed documentaries that have obtained recognition for their unique, relevant, and exceptional cinematic efforts. The series hosts filmmakers for in-person Q&As moderated by curator and lecturer Chico Colvard. The Film Series also partners with UMass Boston faculty, film industry insiders, and local organizations to participate in post-screening panel discussions about the issues central to the featured films. Ultimately, the UMass Boston Film Series aims to create a synergy of place around the moving image.
