Lake Effects Film Series

The #LakeEffects Film Series is going digital! 

To make sure you can stay healthy while enjoying fabulous Great Lakes documentaries and short films, we’re taking the whole FREE series online. All films will now be livestreamed over Zoom, starting at 7pm. Our guest speakers will be joining remotely as well, so you’ll still get the full film series experience — with your own bowl of popcorn in the comfort of your home or office. 

If you’ve missed a previous night in the series, click here to find links to nearly all the material we showed.

While the on-campus screenings have been canceled, it’s easy to join remotely. Just use the Zoom link below to join the livestream with your computer, tablet, or smartphone, starting at 7pm on Thursdays from now through April 9. Save that link, because you can use the same for one each night of the series.
