Tucker-Boatwright Festival of Literature and the Arts

Reimagining Community In Cinema

The University of Richmond 2023-2024 Tucker Boatwright Festival of Literature and Arts is hosted by the Film Studies interdisciplinary program. “Reimagining Community in Cinema” explores the diverse ways in which community is historically imagined and reimagined in documentary and fiction film from the silent era to the digital age. Through events such as symposia, masterclasses, film screenings and conversations with filmmakers, the festival honors in particular the contributions of historically marginalized communities.


A career program specifically for A&S students, A&S NEXT connects students with alumni and faculty to gain hands-on experience exploring and solving real-world problems.
