As the academic year comes to a close, we’ve acquired an interesting film collection that’s worth a special mention.

In their own words, the Global Film Initiative “promotes cross-cultural understanding through the medium of cinema.” Their board includes such esteemed filmmakers as Pedro Almodóvar and Lars von Trier. Each year, the GFI chooses a selection of narrative feature films from around the world for special presentation as part of their traveling Global Lens series.

This week, we added the Global Lens 2012 series to our collections. It features ten films from across the world, including Albania, Brazil, and Rwanda. If you’re interested in world cinema, these films are certainly worth a look.

(And if you’re looking for something to screen for a club or event, our copies of the films have public performance rights. Please consult with us in advance.)
