ABOUT the riverrun Global Film Series:

The riverrun Global Film Series aspires to create a dialogue between local community and institutions of higher education in Buffalo through a selection of films that provide a better understanding of our present existence in the globalized networked world.

The riverrun Global Film Series presents a curated selection of quality films that moves beyond national frameworks to account for an increasingly transnational imagination of film production, reception and distribution. This annual three-day film series runs from Thursday evening through Saturday night at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo, NY. The Global Film Series builds on the success of riverrun’s continuing Cinegael Buffalo program, which has focused on Irish film since 2004. A film scholar and/or filmmaker will provide context for the focus of each year’s series in an opening address. The series is free and open to the public and welcomes film enthusiasts, students and scholars. The inaugural riverrun Global Film Series was held in September 2016 and focused on Iran. In 2017 the series will focus on Cuban cinema and culture.
