Join us in a celebration of the life of Mario Falsetto. At the memorial, friends and colleagues will speak celebrate the life of Professor emeritus Mario Falsetto and we will screen films that were meaningful to him.
Mario was a beloved professor whose career at Concordia spanned 34 years – from 1978 until his retirement in 2012. During this time, he helped to build one of the most highly regarded Cinema Departments in North America and in doing so, he inspired many faculty and students.
A Professor in Film Studies, Mario taught dozens of film courses, specializing in avant-garde cinema, the films of Stanley Kubrick, American Cinema of the 1960s and 1970s, and many contemporary independent narrative filmmakers. He held various administrative positions, including Chair of the Cinema Department, Graduate Program Director in Film Studies and Associate Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts.
