The Department of History and the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities are pleased to support Spotlight on Academics, a film festival that presents the world through an academic lens. At a time when online resources are more important than ever, Spotlight on Academics provides educators with an opportunity to view award-winning films that are relevant to their teaching needs.

Spotlight on Academics is free and will stream on Research from February 9-12, 2023.

The films can be viewed at any time during the festival. Instructors are encouraged to search the festival’s offerings for films suitable for use in the classroom and are welcome to invite students to attend the festival.
