For our 34th consecutive season we assembled 14 internationally acclaimed films from thirteen different countries. The selections in the 2015-2016 series have been recognized by critics as some of the best cinema the world has to offer, collecting prizes from international film festivals and award competitions such as the U.S. Academy Awards, Cannes Film Festival, César Awards, Berlin International Film Festival, and the Asian-Pacific Film Festival. The series included all five Oscar finalists for Best Foreign Language Film.

The UW-Parkside Foreign Film Series does not provide ratings generated by the Motion Picture Association of America. Many foreign films have not received ratings from the MPAA, and the rating system itself may not reflect the sensibilities of our patrons.

For FFS patrons who are interested in taking children to one of our films, we recommend that they visit kids-in-mind for more information about a film's violence, sex, and profanity content. This site, however, does not include films that have not received a MPAA rating. In those cases where MPAA ratings are not available we encourage patrons to read reviews.


All films in this year's program have been linked to an external review. Patrons who would like to read alternative reviews are encouraged to visit online review search engines. Here are three online resources that we recommend:
