For the second year in a row, the Department of Film and Media Studies at UC Irvine is giving students the opportunity to attend screenings at an international film festival in our area that is known for its fantastic selection of films in all genres from all over the world.

Four movie passes will be provided by the department. You are free to purchase single tickets on your own for additional screenings you would like to attend. One night stay will be paid for by the department; students will be expected to share rooms. Drivers will be reimbursed for mileage, so we encourage you to carpool.

The second group will arrive on January 4th and leave January 5th. On your application, please indicate your availability on these dates.

Applications are due by 5:00 pm on December 1, 2017. You will be notified by December 11, 2017. Please note that we will be traveling to the festival BEFORE the beginning of Winter Quarter.
