On Tuesday, April 4—the date on which George Orwell's classic character Winston Smith begins writing his journal in Orwell's landmark novel—more than 90 art house movie theaters across the country will be collectively participating in a National Event Day screening of 1984. FilmScene is proud to join our friends in the film community to consider the issues raised by this important movie.

This event previews a campus-wide event, 1984 in 2017: A Symposium, to be held Friday, April 14, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Iowa City Public Library, and 8–10 p.m. at Public Space One (120 N. Dubuque St.).

Please join us again for a series of panel presentations, workshops, and live performances exploring Orwell's dystopic vision. Free and open to the public.
