Spanish Film Club Virtual Festival (ALICE JÚNIOR)

Spanish Film Club (SFC), an initiative by PRAGDA, offers a highly competitive grant twice a year to help universities bring the very best in contemporary Spanish and Latin American cinema to campuses to introduce students to the language and cultures of these territories. More than 100 universities have participated in the program so far.

The inventive model allows universities to select a minimum of five films from a catalog to create a film festival on campus. A committee of American and Spanish experts in Spanish language cinema has made an eclectic and diverse selection of films featuring first-time filmmakers and established masters alike. All films feature English subtitles. Representing 15 countries, the films renew every year.

This spring 2022 Dr. Maia Fernández-Lamarque, Professor and Distinguished Global Fellow in the Department of Literature and Languages, applied for this grant for the second time. Texas A&M University-Commerce was one of the selected institutions to organize this university-wide global event. The Spanish Film Club is also sponsored by a grant awarded by the College of Humanities Social Sciences and Arts and the Program of Latin American and Latino Studies to Dr. Lamarque.

The SFC is possible thanks to a collective effort and collaboration from professors from the Spanish program and across colleges at the university. This festival will introduce students and a generally broader audience to the cultures of these territories stimulating knowledge and cultural exchange, which are keys for educating students in an interconnected world.

The first film in the festival is 2019 Brazilian film "Alice Júnior." The film will be available for viewing from March 27-28.
