Presented by: Michelle Brannen

At the University of Tennessee, Librarians and Residence Hall Assistants teamed up to host a film festival for residence hall students. Goals of the program focused increasing community among students in residence halls as well as increasing knowledge of library resources. In this brief presentation, we will share our goals for the program, tips for hosting a 1-day film festival, and outcomes from our event based on feedback from participants. Join us as we explore the benefits of engaging students outside the classroom using a film festival model.
