Writers Conference Film Festival

2019 Writers Conference Film Festival Schedule 

All events are free and open to the public.

Although the UND Writers Conference has included a "Film Festival" since at least 1998, how the films were selected, and why, hasn't always been clear. Each year, we ask participating authors to select a film that they think speaks to the Conference's theme, that has influenced their work in some way, and/or that they want those in attendance to see. When possible, we will provide an answer to this long-standing question, along with a synopsis of the film (coming soon)
