Join us for the Fall 2023 Film Series!
Film is an important, even vital, cultural and educational art form. As such, film can help us understand ourselves and our world. At its best, film can raise the perennial questions of human existence, aid in preserving our cultural inheritance, introduce the rich treasures of other cultures, and challenge us to think for ourselves.
In showing films that have artistic merit and intellectual value, we seek to further Lindenwood University’s commitment to values-centered programs leading to the development of the whole person–an educated, responsible citizen of a global community. The Lindenwood Film Series is a way of fulfilling this commitment for our campus and for the community at large.
