Hong Kong /New York – Student Film Festival and Exchange

The Department of Film and Media Studies at Hunter College is pleased to announce “HK/NY Home”. This upcoming event will bring together students and faculty from Hunter College with a group visiting us from the Film Academy of Hong Kong Baptist University for an exciting evening featuring the work of graduate and undergraduate students from each program.

Thursday, April 5th
4 PM Screening | Lang Hall (HN424)
7 PM Reception |  TV Studio (HN436)
Location: 4th floor, Hunter North Building
Enter at 69th Street between Lexington & Park Avenues

For more info, please contact: Prof. Marty Lucas

Please join us on April 5th in the Lang Auditorium, Hunter North, 4th floor. The screening will begin at 4PM. The film screening is followed by a discussion at 6PM. There will be a reception at 7PM in the Hunter TV Studio/HN436. The event will feature a dozen short films around the theme of “Home.” We believe this motif is productive for sparking interesting intersections between experiences in two large cities where students come from many backgrounds. This is an unusual chance for our students and faculty to meet their peers from another public university film program in a city that is a vibrant hub of media making. It is also what we hope is the beginning of a fruitful and ongoing exchange, one that will continue in September, when our students will be traveling to Hong Kong.
