The First Rule of Film Club: You Talk About Film Club

By Adam Tan

Waldorf’s newest club is a place for students who love films to share their passion with their peers. It is the reel deal!

Dr. Jordana Hall, a professor of the English department and sponsor of the Film Club, invites all movie buffs to come join the Film Club’s monthly meeting that happens on the third Thursday of every month. 

Over a week ago, the Film Club had their very first movie screening in the Luise V. Hanson Library. The movie of choice was the recent Academy Award winner for Best Animated Feature Film, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. With the recent explosion of superhero movies, it was an obvious pick for the Film Club for its outstanding aesthetics and animation. 

The Film Club’s primary goal is to encourage students to have discussions about the movies after viewing. A typical discussion could range from the movie’s theme to cultural significance or even the aesthetic values of the film. As Dr. Hall would say, the fun part about watching movies is talking about them after.

However, even if you are not a fan of participating in the discussions, the Film Club welcomes all who just want to watch a movie and have a good time. 

With Halloween right around the corner, the Film Club has plans to screen Dracula (1992) in October, a classic movie directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The movie is based on the 1897 classic novel of the same title written by Bram Stoker, of which the students in the Literary Analysis class are currently reading as part of their curriculum.

Whether students are cinephiles or just looking to have a good time, they can grab some friends and head to the Film Club’s next movie screening! Dr. Jordana Hall can be contacted via email ( if there are any inquiries regarding the meeting time.
