The First Annual ACM Student Film Conference and Festival
We are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Associated Colleges of the Midwest Film Conference and Festival to be held April 1-3, 2016 at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. ACMFILM showcases the best creative and academic work from student filmmakers, screenwriters, and scholars from ACM affiliated campuses. ACMFILM offers students a rare regional educational opportunity and seeks to bridge the geography of film, bringing it from the Coasts to the Midwest. In addition, ACMFILM provides a forum for students to exchange perspectives and learn from distinguished media artists and industry professionals.
The Conference allows student scholars the opportunity to showcase their research on topics from a variety of theoretical, cultural and historical approaches to Film Studies and visual culture. We invite submissions of scholarly papers on any aspect of Film and Media Studies that are no more than 15 minutes in length. A committee composed of ACM faculty and students will select papers to be presented at the ACM Festival and Conference.
The Festival provides a forum for students to exchange perspectives and learn from distinguished media artists and industry professionals. We will invite submissions of student screenplays and student-made film and video works of any length in the categories of narrative, documentary, experimental, animation, public service, performance, and music video. A selection committee composed of faculty, professionals in the field, and students from the ACM member schools will make all programming decisions, and an independent festival jury will recognize top submissions in each category.
