Faculty, students, residents, come one come all. We invite you to join us for an exciting second foray into Film this year. People often discuss their favorite films but less frequently we hear conversation around those Scenes that Mean the Most To Us. What are the standout scenes that shaped your life, contribute to how you engage with your work, your life, your family? Please bring a favorite scene or two for sharing on November 25th at 6:30pm.
Outstanding contributions last time round comprised scenes films such as The Diving Bell & The Butterfly, The Theory of Everything, and The Night of The Hunter; what would you like to see this time out?
We are not big on rules but in the interest of respect for all present we do ask the following:
- No long scenes: keep them under 2 minutes. We would prefer you bring two or three brief scenes rather than one long one; that way most people get to share
- Sharing YouTube clips works best but please check the clip beforehand for AV quality
- Be prepared to discuss why this scene is important: when did you first see it? Who were you with? Why does it speak to you? What do you know about how it was made?
- No violence or vulgarity: this is not an invitation to make people uncomfortable. While we are not in the business of censorship, we will immediately shut down & remove inappropriate material and those responsible.
- As always, be respectful; all choices and reasons for such are valid and welcome.
