The NCI at Frederick Employee Diversity Team (EDT) has prepared a new display that features a sample of the foreign films from the team’s collection in the Scientific Library. “Foreign films really help stimulate an awareness of different cultures and countries. I think it is a great celebration of diversity to have the Employee Diversity Team promote films from across the globe and make them available to our employees,” said Amber Elia, program analyst, NCI at Frederick Office of Scientific Operations, and member of the EDT.

To see the sample of movies on display, stop by the display case in the lobby of Building 549. Be sure to bring your answers to the quiz so you can be entered for a chance to win two free movie tickets to Regal Cinemas. Submit your answers in the drop box to the left of the display case. To see a full listing of the EDT’s movie collection, visit the Scientific Library website.
