The riverrun Global Film Series aspires to create a dialogue between local community and institutions of higher education in Buffalo through a selection of films that provide a better understanding of our present existence in the globalized networked world.

The inaugural riverrun Global Film Series was held in September 2016 and focused on Iranian films and filmmakers. Special guests included the keynote speaker Professor Hamid Naficy, Northwestern University’s prize-winning scholar of cultural studies and postcolonial cinema and media, and the father of Iranian animation, Noureddin Zarrinkelk.

This year, we are excited to present a great selection of Cuban films and filmmakers!

Join us at the Burchfield-Penney Art Center this October 12-14, 2017.
