Created by a faculty team from the Ivan Allen College's Schools of Modern Languages and Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech, The Global Media Festival: Sustainability Across Languages and Cultures focuses on international media productions that explore issues and challenges associated to sustainability. The Global Media Festival's goal is to serve as a global interdisciplinary forum that creates awareness of the cultural and linguistic challenges that emerge from the different meanings and interpretations of sustainability in diverse contexts.

The program for this year consists of 5 screenings featuring media from Germany, China, Bolivia, France, and the World. After each screening, there will be a discussion with the filmmakers followed by dinner. Come with your friends and learn more about the role of media in shaping ideas and debates associated with sustainability and global challenges. See the full festival schedule for all of the details.
