Liberal Studies Film Series

The Liberal Studies Film Series Committee organizes and hosts cinematic events, composed of film screenings and panel discussions that deal with political, social and cultural issues meaningful to Humber students' professional aspirations and personal lives. In addition to promoting Liberal Studies classes to students, faculty and administrators across the college, these events encourage us to critically reflect on how such issues impact our day-to-day lives and suggest various ways in which we can respond as students, professionals and citizens. If you would like to get involved with the Liberal Studies Film Series, please contact Jonathan Zeyl.
