Civil Rights Doc. Screened At Film Festival

BUFFALO, NY ¯ “On That Road: Reliving the Civil Rights Movement,” a 30-minute video documentary produced by the Canisius College Video Institute, has been competitively selected for screening at the 5th Annual Buffalo Niagara Film Festival (BNFF). “On That Road” will be shown on Monday, April 11 at 4 p.m. at the Market Arcade Theatre on Main Street in Buffalo. 

The 30-minute documentary follows a group of Canisius College students on an enlightening journey as they travel to the Deep South to tour the locations of many important events in the Civil Rights Movement. The documentary was produced by communication studies/digital media arts majors Sarah Zamer ’10 and Emily Marciniak ’11, with an introduction by Joshua Robinson ’12, under the guidance of Barbara J. Irwin, PhD, co-director of the Canisius College Video Institute.

The Buffalo Niagara Film Festival will run April 8-17, 2011 and will screen films at various locations throughout Western New York.


The Canisius College Video Institute provides students with opportunities to put their classroom lessons to work on projects that enrich their learning and benefit the community. Students produce service-oriented videos and social documentaries – all connected by the theme of social justice – to promote discourse on ethical, social and cultural issues relevant to our world today. The program is interdisciplinary, encourages global awareness and puts students in the position of doing social justice.

The Canisius College Video Institute is funded, in part, by the East Hill Foundation and co-directed by Irwin, chair of the Communication Studies Department, and Jamie M. O’Neil, director of the Digital Media Arts Program.


Canisius College is one of 28 Jesuit Colleges in the nation and the premier private college in Western New York. Canisius prepares leaders – intelligent, caring, faithful individuals – able to pursue and promote excellence in their professions, their communities and their service to humanity.
