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. Countway Cinema events are free and open to the all who register.
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.
