FIT is the educational partner of the Chelsea Film Festival, which will take place Thursday, October 19 to Sunday, October 22. The event, now in its fifth year, is an international festival that highlights the work of emerging filmmakers, producers, and actors. As a partner, FIT will host screenings on campus in the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre, in the Pomerantz Center, and in the David Dubinsky Student Center.
