“The Forum Film Festival offers an exciting mix of current blockbusters, classic favorites, documentaries, and independent movies,” said Thane Rosenbaum, the John Whelan Distinguished Lecturer in Law at Fordham Law School and Forum director.

“These films illuminate the legal system with all of its triumphs, failures, moral dilemmas, and dramatic moments,” said Rosenbaum.

The festival is supported by HBO and the Forum on Law, Culture and Society at Fordham Law School.

The event opens October 19 with a screening of the HBO miniseries John Adams, and continues with The House I Live In, The Truce, Good Night, and Good Luck, Clockers, and Duck Soup. The Festival concludes with the Forum Short Film Competition screening and awards.
