2016 SERIE Film Festival

World Languages and Cultures at USI presented the third installment in the international film series with a German Film Festival (SERIE). Through the generosity of the Goethe-Institut (Boston, MA) and the assistance of the USI Society for the Arts and Humanities, we secured the rights to five films – M, Lili Marleen, The System, Almanya: Welcome to Germany, and Run Lola Run - which were screened on campus for a large public audience.

With over 500 attendees, the first Tournées Film Festival at USI in 2015 was a huge success! We couldn't have done it without the support of the USI and Tri-State communities.

A woman's quest to uncover her past in Martinique. A single father's touching relationship with his daughter, set in a bleak, rural town in Quebec. The charmingly animated story of friendship between a bear and a mouse. Through these stories and more, you will discover French and Francophone culture in six critically acclaimed films. Through the generous support of the FACE Foundation, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Department of World Languages and Cultures at the University of Southern Indiana, we are bringing you the Tournées Film Festival on Fridays at 7:30 p.m. from January 23 - February 27.  The films will be shown in French with English subtitles.
