Mooncake the Cat enjoyed at-home viewing of our online spring exhibition and we hope you did, too. FSC events will return in the Fall!

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.

Film Screening Room at the Logan

Donning hard hats and reflective vests, CMS faculty, students and staff explored the new Logan Center for the Arts on a preview tour in mid-March. Though still under construction, the state-of-the-art Film Screening Room and Film Vault are on their way to becoming exceptional resources for the Department of Cinema and Media Studies.  Starting in October, the new facilities will house most CMS courses, public events and media collections. The multi-format screening room is equipped to show everything from film to digital to 3-D in a comfortable, acoustically isolated, 130-seat theater.
