The Bay Film Series marks its 21st year at Bay College celebrating the art of filmmaking by showing the best in international, documentary, and independent cinema. The College and Bay Film Series Coordinator and Instructor, Nanci Love, are excited to announce the release the film titles for winter 2022-2023.

“Streaming and lockdown have altered the landscape of what’s available for public showings.  I’m happy to announce that movies are again available as we enter our ‘Race to the Oscars’ annual showcase,” says Nanci Love, Bay Film Series Coordinator and Instructor.

The first Oscar contender will show on December 8 - Three Thousand Years Longing.

Next films in the series are: 

On January 26th, the Film Series will show She Said, a real-life journalistic thriller.  Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan star as the two New York Times reporters who broke Hollywood’s Harvey Weinstein scandal that lead to the #Metoo movement.  Movie Nation praises the film as “a thoroughly engrossing account of how one of the touchstone stories of our time came to light.”  The film is favored as a Best Picture contender.

The February 16th movie title will be announced in 2023.

On March 2nd, the Film Series will collaborate with Bay College’s Diversity Committee to show the documentary Warrior Lawyers: Defenders of Sacred Justice, by Michigan filmmaker Audrey Geyer.  More information will be announced closer to the screening of this important work.

Women Talking is scheduled for April 13th, another film highly favored on Gold Derby for getting a Best Picture nomination.  As described on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie is about women who question “Do nothing. Stay and fight. Or leave.  In 2010, the women of an isolated religious community grapple with reconciling a brutal reality with their faith.”
