About the Festival

Presenting the best of new fiction, documentary and experimental filmmaking by international filmmakers, the Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival seeks to cultivate an appreciation of film and the moving image, to inspire audiences to a deeper understanding of the world's cultures through film, and to celebrate past, present and future achievements of international filmmaking within a university setting. Our culturally diverse films are screened for the benefit of students, faculty, and the interested public, with critical introductions by scholars and filmmakers. 

Presented by the Interdepartmental Program in Film Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
