Antigone

In Quebec, Antigone faces what seems to be an insurmountable challenge—following her own sense of justice in the face of a strict immigration system. This social realist retelling of the classic tragedy makes it relevant for today.

North Korea has continually baffled Americans for the duration of its existence. To help form a clearer understanding of the so-called “hermit kingdom,” Dr. Kirk Larsen gives a succinct overview of some of the myths we hear and offers a more complete picture of North Korea. After addressing these myths, viewers of Assassins (2020) can better form their own opinions based on the film’s evidence.

Winter 2021 Semester

How to Stream

Each week this semester, IC will offer several feature films and documentaries online through our Hummedia collection or through other streaming providers. Some films will require personal links that we will send out through email. However, IC streaming will only be available to current BYU students, faculty, and staff. These individuals will need to sign up here using their NetID.
Those who signed up last semester will not have to sign up again. Students who need to watch IC films for their classes should sign up as soon as possible, as authentication for each NetID requires human intervention and therefore takes time.

International Cinema Studies Minor

The minor in International Cinema Studies is for students who love visual media and want to develop skills in critical analysis, writing, and interpretation along with knowledge about cinema theory, history, and diverse cultures. The ICS minor is a great addition to a major in the Humanities for a media-oriented student as it allows for a deeper focus on cinema, media studies, and international contexts than most majors are able to support. It is also a great addition for majors from outside the college of Humanities who need their cinema fix and something to help them round out their education with course work that will make them better communicators, writers, and thinkers.

Language Instructors,
We invite you to click on the links below to add reminders to your calendar for films of interest that will be streaming at IC. Clicking on a particular language will populate your calendar with all the films showing this semester in that language, so you can better coordinate your class schedules with our film offerings.

To further aid in the incorporation of IC offerings into your courses, we are in the process of developing RSS feeds that will enable you to add reminders for films in Learning Suite.

BYU INTERNATIONAL CINEMA

BYU International Cinema, sponsored by the BYU College of Humanities, is one of the longest-running university foreign film programs of its kind in the United States. There is no special admission charge or fee for International Cinema films. We do ask you to be quiet and courteous, to turn off cell phones, and to research films before you bring children.
