Please join us in the winter quarter for a series celebrating Canyon Cinema's 50th anniversary, the Chicago premieres of two films by Filipino filmmaker Lav Diaz, and much more.

20 year anniversary

We’re celebrating! Twenty years ago this fall, the Film Studies Center threaded up its first reel, dimmed the lights, and screened its first film in Cobb 307. Thousands of films and videos later, we are celebrating our 20th anniversary with a new home in the Logan Center for the Arts, a new environmentally sound film vault for the ever-expanding collection, and a renewed enthusiasm for cinema and media studies in an era of expanding technologies.
