Notes from the IFS Desk

Pablo Kjølseth, Fall 2016

The IFS turned 75 this year! It was a treat to spend the summer perusing the archives to see the changes the program has gone through over all these years. Change is inevitable, and anyone holding this calendar will notice a big change in layout strategy. We’ve abandoned the week-by-week grid in favor of a calendar that now goes show-by-show. This allows us to include the First Person Cinema and Celebrating Stan events with the regular IFS programming in one layout. This semester’s calendar also begins a bit earlier (with a Sneak Preview of Derek Cianfrance’s latest film, The Light Between Oceans, on August 30th), and ends later (with offerings into December).

In addition, we’ve partnered with several other departments and programs here on campus for C.U. at the Movies. These are movies that various faculty members across campus have either selected or supported, with each giving special introductions before the show.

I’d also like to thank the Japan Foundation and  The Tourneés Festival for their program inclusions.

On the topic of inevitable change, please look closely at the latest IFS parking map to best plan out your evening of movie-watching. Euclid Autopark will be unavailable in the fall due to construction, but there are still free parking options that are a small walk away, or pay options that land you even closer.
