"Global Lens 2010," an international film festival, is scheduled March 27-April 2 at Montana State University's Procrastinator Theater.

Ten films from 10 countries have been selected for the festival, which is presented by the ASMSU Procrastinator Theater and the Global Film Initiative.

Admission price for all films is $2. The Procrastinator Theater is located in the MSU Strand Union Building. Screenings are scheduled from noon through 9:15 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and twice nightly during the week.

The films selected for the festival include: "Adrift," a Vietnamese film by Bui Thac Chuyen; "Becloud," a Mexican film by Alejandro Gerber Bicecci; "Gods," a Peruvian film by Josu Mndez; "Leo's Room," an Uruguyan film by Enrique Buchichio; "Masquerades," an Algerian film by Lyes Salem; "My Tehran for Sale," an Iranian film by Granaz Moussavi; "Ocean of an Old Man," an Indian film by Rajesh Shera; "Ordinary People," a Serbian film by Vladimir Perisic; "The Shaft," a Chinese film by Zhang Chi; and "Shirley Adams," a South African film by Oliver Hermanus.

"This is an exciting opportunity for the campus and Bozeman communities," said Dave Keto from ASMSU films, organizer of the event. "A festival of this caliber gives us a chance to offer our patrons films they would not otherwise have access to anywhere in our region. We hope the success of the festival this year will allow us to make it an annual event."
