TAMIU Annette Olsen-Fazi International
Film Festival Starts Saturday, May 2

Through the month of May, see the world without leaving Laredo. Come join Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) for the TAMIU Annette Olsen-Fazi International Film Festival.

The Film Festival will primarily be screened at the TAMIU Student Center Theater, room SC 236 twice weekly throughout May.

The films are free of charge and open to the public.

The Festival honors the memory of the late Dr Annette Olsen-Fazi, a TAMIU faculty member who initiated the University’s first French Film Festival in 2007 and passed away this January.

The TAMIU Annette Olsen-Fazi International Film Festival was made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
