Film Screenings

At the end of every term, the Department has two screenings of student films: one for films made by students in the Introduction to Filmmaking course, and the other for student films produced in advanced filmmaking courses like Producing and Directing, Narrative Filmmaking and Animation. All of our students, faculty and staff come together at these events to support the impressive creative work of these aspiring filmmakers. The Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Alumni Advisory Board, Provost, President and other high-profile University leaders are invited to these events. These screenings are also open to all at the University and the local Hartford community, including local filmmakers and professionals in the arts. As you can see, we have a packed house at these screenings.
