Wolpow Institute co-sponsors Film Festival

French Film FestivalIn April, the Wolpow Institute is partnering with the French Section of the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, and other WWU departments to bring the Tournée French Film Festival to campus. The festival will feature six films which deal with various aspects of the Second World War, and the time periods just before and after the war. It will run for three weeks in April with screenings at 7 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays in the Viking Union Room 552, on the Western Washington University campus.

All films are free and open to the public and will feature brief pre- and post-screening discussions by colleagues from across campus.
