January 2017 events

Monday, January 16th from 7 to 9pm : 1st edition of Ciné-Salon

As a way to reconnect with full-length features as a collective cultural experience, the Ciné-Salon will present once a month a movie or documentary that has minimal reach. The objective is to gather students, cinephiles, curious minds and anyone else in an open, inclusive and welcoming environment.

Each projection will begin with a short introduction to the movie and followed with informal dicussions afterwards. Organized by the Institute for the Public Life of Arts and Ideas at McGill.
