“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.
