Columbia’s 8 Global Centers
Dear Jean Paul,
Professor Peña, Professor of film studies at Columbia, TV host, and Director Emeritus of the New York Film Festival, will host discussions with world-famous directors, actors, and critics from France and the United States, comparing the Film Noir genre in both countries.
The list of screenings follows below. Please let us know if you would like to attend any or all. And, if you wish to cover the event, we may be able to arrange interviews with Richard and his guests before or after the event.
The goal of Columbia’s 8 Global Centers around the world is to promote the engagement of the University’s faculty, students, and alumni with global audiences, to enhance understanding, address global challenges, and advance knowledge and its exchange.
Our Film Noir series is just one of our many important cultural and scholarly programs hosted by Reid Hall in Paris. To RSVP, interview Richard Peña and guests, or learn more about the Paris Global Center and its activities, please contact me by email or phone. We are here to be of service.
