Film is the most popular form of art and entertainment in the world and a wonderful way for us to communicate with each other. The International Film Series gives us a glimpse into other cultures to see their uniqueness, history, and what is important to them. It is also a great look into the universality of all countries and cultures and allows us the opportunity to see often times we share more than we realize. Travel around the world with us as we explore innovative films and fascinating cultures. A post film discussion will follow each screening with Gary Zaro.

Gary Zaro is a Professor of Humanities at Paradise Valley Community College, and is the Director of the International Film Festival @ PVCC. He has conducted film presentations at Desert Foothills Library, Phoenix Art Museum, Mesquite Library, Scottsdale Jewish Community Center, and Foothills Community Foundation. Gary is also an actor and stage director with over 200 plays and television commercials to his credit.
