Bright Lights Is Back in the House

Bright Lights Film Series is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year by returning to live screenings at the Paramount Center.

For the first time since March 2020, when the pandemic drove all screenings and post-film conversations online, cinephiles will be able to gather together (masked) in the Bright Family Screening Room every Thursday at 7:00 pm.

This semester’s lineup includes both narrative and documentary films. The series opens on January 27 with Fanny: Right to Rock, about the legendary all-women, Filipina-American-led rock band.

Emerson’s own Jim Cummings ’09 wrote and directed February 10’s selection, The Wolf of Snow Hollow (produced by Ben Wiessner ’08), about terror gripping a small mountain town. Cummings and Wiessner will discuss their film following the show.

Kristen Stewart has been getting rave reviews for her performance as Princess Diana in Spencer. You can catch it at Bright Lights on February 24.

Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective (March 24) follows five Native American tribes as they restore their traditional land management practices.

All screenings are free, but will be ticketed, with tickets available at the Paramount box office or at artsemerson.org beginning at noon on the day of the show.

For the complete lineup, as well as film descriptions and guest speakers, visit the Bright Lights webpage.
