In the Spring of 2009, Colby and Bowdoin co-sponsored a showcase of recent Italian film shorts. Entitled "Italy's Young Talent," the showcase introduced some of Italy's most remarkable young directors and their recent short films to students in the U.S. Each evening's screening included seven to nine subtitled shorts, and the program's curator, Edward Bowen, provided brief introductions to each short and led a discussion afterwards.
