Screen/Society is organized and coordinated by the Arts of the Moving Image Program's Hank Okazaki.
It provides a film and video exhibition program for the Triangle community, with an emphasis on screening challenging and thought-provoking work in its original format, whether 35mm, digital/video, or 16mm. Screen/Society advances the academic study of film at Duke. It works with Arts and Sciences Departments to relate film, video, and digital art to other disciplines. Screen/Society emphasizes the historical nature of media technologies and media cultures and brings a transnational and transcultural perspective to the promotion of media literacy.
Screen/Society provides an opportunity for departments, programs, and centers to host film series (or individual screening events). These series may be related to courses, research or broad themes of interest.
All screenings and events are free and open to the general public!
Screen/Society's Spring 2017 program includes the AMI Showcase film series, the Documenting the Middle East series, the Rights! Camera! Action! film series, the 2017 French Film Festival, the 2017 African Film Festival, the Global Health Film Festival, the Cine-East: East Asian Cinema series, the Film in Theory series, the Nasher Museum of Arts's Nina Chanel Abney: Royal Flush series, and Special Events, combining a screening with a guest speaker, filmmaker Q&A, panel discussion, or reception.
