UK Libraries marks “Year of Europe” with film series and exhibits

Dirty pretty things is part of the film series.

As part of the “Year of Europe” sponsored by the UK College of Arts and Sciences, UK Libraries is hosting a festival of European films accompanied by an exhibit in William T. Young Library. Faculty members on the Year of Europe Steering Committee chose the award-winning films, each of which is introduced by a faculty member with knowledge of the featured country. The festival is sponsored jointly by UK Libraries and the College of Arts and Sciences. 

The exhibit Europe Through the Lens: A Festival of Contemporary European Films displays posters promoting the film series. The posters are the original artwork of Zach Lamb, graduate student assistant for the Late Night Student Film series and were created for this festival.  

Five films remain in the series beginning with Biutiful, screening at 6 p.m., February 11, 2016, in the UK Athletics Auditorium of Young Library.

A complete schedule of the films along with descriptions, trailers and information about the directors can be found at:

In addition to the film festival, UK Libraries invites members of the UK community to try their skills as vexillogogists, and test their knowledge of the flags of European nations. The 19 flags currently on display in the atrium of Young Library represent a selection of the 38 European countries represented by the “Year of Europe.” Flag keys are available at library circulation, information services, and security desks.

Information on featured European countries and the European Union can be found at
