about cinema politica University of Calgary

Funded by the Department of Communication, Media and Film, Cinema Politica University of Calgary brings a series of social-issue and political films to a well-established audience over the past 15 years. All screenings are by donation (cash or non-perishable food items) with proceeds going to the Campus Food Bank. A Q&A after the screening is usually held so audience members can share their views and further discuss topics mentioned in the films.

Join us at the Gallery Hall at the Taylor Family Digital Library (TFDL) every last Wednesday of each month starting at 7pm from September-November and then January-March.
