Explore Award-winning Films

Countway is excited to announce a brand new initiative: Countway Cinema, a year-round series of film screenings on a wide range of topics. Following some screenings, attendees are invited to take part in discussions with subject experts from the Harvard and Longwood Medical community. Countway Cinema events are unique opportunities to explore timely and important films with other members of the Countway community. Join us to watch documentaries and movies that may otherwise be difficult to access individually. Registration for all Countway Cinema events is free and open to the public.

Due to current safety protocols, Countway Cinema events will be held virtually. When it is safe to gather in person again, we look forward to hosting these events in our newly renovated library with popcorn and other refreshments!


Connect With Us

If you have a suggestion for a film, or would like to join us to guide a post-screening discussion, we would love to hear from you! We are also always interested in connecting with departments wishing to partner with us or co-host a Countway Cinema event. Please contact us anytime.
