History Film Forum 2017 – Day Two

The History Film Forum is the premier film festival focused on history in the United States. A free multi-day exploration of history on the screen from March 9-12, 2017, the Forum brings together the nation’s top filmmakers, film viewers, and scholars in conversation about what history we do – and do not – learn from watching movies, documentaries, and television.

The 2017 History Film Forum will examine themes of diversity and access in history filmmaking and ask: how does what we watch shape what we believe? All sessions are free, registration is required for each session. To register or for more information visit: http://historyfilmforum.si.edu
