The Bryn Mawr Film Society seeks to provide a community for film lovers, filmmakers, actors, and writers. We wish to promote film as an individual and communal experience, allowing participants of all backgrounds to be committed to a degree that suits their needs. Our purpose is to support one another in our endeavors, and to act as a resource, making film accessible to all people interested. We meet bimonthly, second and fourth Thursday, at 9-10pm in Taylor E. Our list serv makes it possible to stay connected to one another outside of meetings, and is open for anyone to join and use. http://newmailman.brynmawr.edu/mailman/listinfo/filmsociety

This initiative was made possible through the generosity of the Mellon Foundation and a PA Dept. of Ed.Link-to-Learn Higher Education Grant: Improving Technology at Colleges and Universities (ITCU), 2002.
