In our continuous effort to combat social distancing, the FIU Film Studies program has been hosting virtual movie screenings via Netflix’s Teleparty. Make sure to join us this week at 8PM for Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, starring Leo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicholson.
We’re holding these screenings every Wednesday at 8:00 PM using Teleparty (formerly Netflix Party). Our Wednesday night screenings allow our interns to choose movies they like or are interested in and share them with the FIU community. They also give our interns a chance to interact with other FIU film-lovers and converse about the movie during every screening. (Here is how to use Teleparty, if you haven’t before.)
If you are interested in attending, the movie of the week being screened will usually be announced that Monday on the FIU film Studies Instagram page, along with a flyer that includes details for the screening. Some films we’ve screened in the past include Killing Them Softly, Boyz n the Hood, Fargo, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. From gangster flick to black comedy crime thriller, we like to cover a wide range of genres which keeps things interesting for our viewers.
Make sure to check the FIU film studies’ Instagram page (@fiufilmstudies) for any updates regarding our screenings. You can also stop by to say hi to our interns and suggest a movie you’d be interested in seeing us screen.
