The robust film community at Yale might be one of the university’s best kept secrets. Yale students run a large, international film festival (YSFF) that screens remarkable student work on campus over a three day period in April. Yale students write, direct, produce, and act in original films through Bulldog Productions. The Yale Film Society hosts screenings of the greatest films of all time– those sufficiently appreciated and those overlooked – on 35mm in the Whitney Humanities Center all year long. And in fact, if you’re in the know, you could find a movie to see on campus almost any day of the week.
The Yale Film Alliance is the representative body for all Yale’s film organizations. We meet weekly to help each other with various projects and plan events. Our goal is to connect the threads of the campus film scene, increase the popularity of all the film offerings, and draw in anyone who might be interested.
