TCS 198 and FYS 004-15 Students visit SFIFF
On April 29th and 30th, Professor Wyman took a group of 25 UCD students (a combination of students from courses TCS 198 and FYS 004-15) in San Francisco to participate in the 59th San Francisco International Film Festival. They attended a program called College Days, where, with a group of students from SFSU, they saw 4+ films at the new Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, participated in Q&A’s in the theater with filmmakers and subjects from each film, and then had a lunch roundtable with more filmmakers at a nearby Mission taqueria.
They saw two powerful new award winning documentaries which had recently premiered at Sundance (NUTS! by Penny Lane and Audrie & Daisy by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk) and two wonderful international narrative films (Very Big Shot (Lebanon) by Mir-Jean Bou Chaya and Radio Dreams (USA/ Iran) by Babak Jalali).
Attached is the flyer for the classes that participated, and this opportunity is being offered again in Spring 2017.
