The University of Northern Colorado’s International Film Series returns this fall, its selection proudly pondering the existence of truth and its place within governmental power.

Discussing individual viewpoints and how they are strengthened with personal transformations and acceptance, IFS will share several stories of different human experiences.

Admission is free for all films. All films can be seen at 7 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday evenings in the Lindou Auditorium, which is in the lower level of Michener Library.

IFS’ first screening is the 2016 film “American Honey” on both Sept. 6 and 7. The documentary film “I Am Not Your Negro” will be up next on Sept. 20 and 21, followed by “Tickling Giants” on Oct. 4 and 5. A discussion about an individual’s First Amendment rights will immediately follow the Oct. 5 show.

A special, one-night-only showing of “Delores” will be on Oct. 19; partnering with the Cesar Chavez Cultural Center and UNC’s Hispanic Studies, IFS will host a panel discussion right after the film.


To get into the Halloween spirit, the 2017 horror film “It Comes at Night” will be on Oct. 25 and 26.

IFS’ final fall screening, “The Great Divide,” will also be for one night only on Nov. 9. Organized in conjunction with Greeley’s annual Go West Film Fest, a panel discussion will immediately follow the film.
