About School Film Series

Since 2012, the School of Political Science and International Studies has run a documentary/film series each semester.

Screenings feature both fictional films and documentaries that address important themes of concern for the study of Political Science and International Studies.

The series is designed as an informal discussion forum about the politics of filmic works in general. Each session will be introduced by a member of the School's teaching team who will also facilitate a post-screening discussion and Q&A.

Anyone at The University of Queensland, whether currently enrolled in School of Political Science and International Studies courses or not, is welcome to attend.
