The longest running film festival in the Bronx returns this weekend at Lehman College’s Lovinger Theatre and Studio Theatre! I was a film history minor in college and have found that international films are the ones that stick with me the most for their unique perspectives and ability toprovide insight into a little slice of life thousands of miles away (my personal favorites are Run Lola Run, Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, and M.). Check out below for all the details and films that will be showing:
