Despite the limitations of the pandemic, the ASUNM Southwest Film Center (SWFC) has been working on ways to continue giving students a cinematic experience. They were able to set up an online platform to stream movies to anyone with a UNM Net ID and make them fully accessible and free.

It’s a great opportunity for students to engage with campus services in a safe way, the SWFC recently announced their film schedule for the rest of the spring semester. These film screenings are being sponsored by Xfinity, so those who sign in to watch the films have the possibility of winning "door prizes."

The following is the schedule for the Spring 2021 Program:

  • Feb. 19 BlackKklansman | Directed by Spike Lee
  • Feb. 26 Beginners | Directed by Mike Mills
