The Spanish and Latin American Studies program is collaborating with the 2014 Made in Catalonia Film Festival. Dr Peter Gerrand, an Adjunct Associate Professor (Research), obtained €3000 from the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport to support the festival.
Monash students enrolled in ATS2058 Catalan Introductory 1 will have the opportunity to help out with the organisation of the festival as volunteers. If you are interested, please contact Dr Stewart King.
The Made in Catalonia Film Festival promotes the extraordinary film culture of Catalonia irrespective of the language – Catalan or Castilian – of the film. For more on the Festival, please click here.
