Vietnam on Film: 50 Years Later

The Vietnam War remains as compelling a part of pop culture in 2023 as the unfolding war was itself in the late 1960s. Though United States involvement in the war officially ended 50 years ago this year, its particularly poignant impact on film is largely because it was the first war to be televised. People from all over the world were watching and not only saw some of the most shocking images ever captured but they were also able to express their views about the war in new ways.

This year, in partnership with the National Veterans Museum, the National Veterans Film Festival, and the Ohio History Connection, Gateway Film Center presents Vietnam on Film: 50 Years Later, a collection of film events, paired with guest speakers and conversations, which present the war’s origins, its impact on American society, and its lasting effects on the people of Vietnam.

Gateway Film Foundation, a 501(c)(3), receives year-round support from Ohio Arts Council, Greater Columbus Arts Council, Campus Partners, and The Columbus Foundation.
