Student Organizations on Campus

The Boston University Film Society is dedicated to bringing you the best movies that the world has to offer, whether it’s an intense foreign drama or lighthearted comedy. With an emphasis on laid-back meetings, screenings, and discussion, BUFS is as much a social club as it is a movie club. BUFS welcomes film majors, film fans, or even anyone just mildly interested in movies; all are welcome! So come join us this year: watch some movies and have some fun! Contact
