Join the Brown Club in New York as we celebrate the work of alumni filmmakers.  Here is a rare opportunity to truly experience Brown cinema at its best.  Without a doubt, Brown University has produced some of the most talented minds in film, television, and entertainment. Please join us as we celebrate this wealth of talent with a special screening event, cocktail reception, and panel discussion.

Previous events have featured award-winning filmmakers such as Liz Garbus and Bill Lichtenstein. Likewise, these events have been attended by the likes of Doug Liman, acclaimed filmmaker (Bourne Identity) and John Krasinski, film/ television actor (The Office). Many of the films selected have gone on to greater glory at prominent film festivals like Sundance and Tribeca while others have made their way to the small screen.

Join us for food, wine, and amazing films.  Great chance to network with alumni working in the entertainment industry or simply enjoy great cinema.
