(T)HERE: Transnational Short Films




PepsiCo Theatre, The Performing Arts Center
View films created by Purchase students in collaboration with students from Benin and Haiti.

To foster collective and collaborative dialogue, Purchase College has launched a transnational filmmaking project in which film students from the U.S., Benin in West Africa, and Haiti in the Caribbean work together to produce short films and promote cross-cultural conversations.

The program seeks to inspire young filmmakers to address art, politics, and social issues of relevance across the world. A selection of short films produced in 2017 and 2018 will be showcased during the festival and followed by a discussion with the student filmmakers and the directors of the partner schools.
