The main aim of the UGR Cinema Club (CineClub Universitario) is to explore the past and present of the “Seventh Art” and enable cinema-lovers to develop their critical capacities in cinematography. The Club delves deep into the characteristics, potential, and richness of cinematic language, running a unique series of film screenings for every month of the academic year. The Club also runs optional theoretical courses and workshops in specific areas every trimester (if you do not wish to participate in the workshops and courses, you can simply come along and enjoy the screenings). The activities organized by the UGR Cinema Club are open to both members of the University community and the public.
The 'Captivated by Cinema' (“Cautivos del Cine”) seminars are aimed at enabling you to delve deeper into the topics and issues that arise in the film screenings programmed for each month. Held in 3 hour sessions, participants have the opportunity to analyze and discuss scenes from diverse audiovisual works. The sessions are held in the evening, are free of charge, and are led by Juan de Dios Salas (Director of the Cinema Club).
The film screenings take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 21:00 in the “Aula Magna” lecture theatre in the Faculty of Sciences. Films are always shown in the original language with subtitles in Spanish.
Entrance fee: €2.00
