The Film Series Club at PVCC

Ray Petree III, staff writer

PVCC’s film enthusiasts and casual moviegoers alike have been blessed with the college’s Free Movie Friday event, but we here at the Forum would be remiss to not inform you of another avenue offered at PVCC to satisfy your movie fix. The Film Series is an irregularly scheduled club at PVCC, designed for a variety of movie fans, by dedicated movie fans.

Sponsored by Beryl Solla, a Professor of Art at PVCC and avid film enthusiast herself, the Film Series’ mission is simple; offer first run films to students before they reach their home release. For the laymen, a first run film is a movie still in theaters, airing during the initial run after its release. Generally the flicks that are chosen because they possess a degree of cultural and/or visual significance, and have been well received by a number of critics, usually via a source like Metacritic. Ultimately though, Professor Solla’s goal is to make these movies accessible to PVCC’s student body, and furthermore, the community. And, the Film Series has been doing exactly that for the better part of six years now.

The key phrase to keep in mind is “irregularly scheduled”, because the Film Series only meets twice a semester. Once in the beginning of the semester and again at the end of the semester. If you are interested in attending the club’s next, and final gathering of the semester, you can join them on Dec. 6, at 4:15 in room 117.
