Zoom-In is a screening series and thesis showcase presented by the MA Film and Media Studies class of 2020. The third annual Zoom-In event will return to Lenfest Center for the Arts in Manhattanville February 7-9. This year, the event includes film screenings, presentations, discussion panels, and post-screening Q&A’s with contributions from artists at the Columbia School of the Arts. The program continues to investigate classical problems for our field (documentary, montage, adaptation) as well as issues emerging from today’s media ecologies. Topics include queer British cinema, silent film serial queens, Portuguese folklore festivals, dashcam footage, folk horror, and the mediation of uprisings from the Russian revolution to the Hong Kong Protests to the Arab Spring.
