Here is a group of festivals that students might consider entering – the FMMC department cannot speak to the quality of these festivals, but rather just offers links for students to consider. If FMMC majors are interested in submitting to this or other festivals, speak with the FMMC chair as we can help fund the entry fees.

This is a good opportunity for FMMC students to get work seen at a regional festival:
The Skidmore International Student Film Festival kicks off its sophomore year in 2009. All genres are being accepted and competition is for currently-enrolled students only. The entry fee is only $15. The final deadline is March 13th. See the website for application information.
Any students interested in doing an intership this summer should check out the International Radio & Television Society fellowship program. It offers funded internships in a range of radio & TV companies in New York City. The application deadline is December 1, so you need to move quickly. Good luck!
For current students: we are looking for a few people to serve as Lab Monitors in Axinn, especially in the evening hours. The job description is online and if you’re interested, contact Ethan Murphy.
We’ll also be hiring some office support to assist with projects from faculty and Francisca Drexel. Prof. Grindon is looking for someone to assist him with some research and class preparation materials, working 5-6 hours a week this fall sometime T/W/Th afternoons – if you’re interested, contact him directly. We’re also looking for general support for the faculty and staff, doing a wide range of projects with flexible hours – if you’re interested in that, please contact Jason Mittell.
For all budding documentarians:
The True/False Film Fest is heading into its sixth year of celebrating non-fiction film, and is seeking out groundbreaking documentaries from all over the globe. We are particularly interested in films that walk the line between fact and fiction, commenting in some way on our world and on filmmaking itself. On February 26 of 2009, Columbia, Missouri will transform itself into a Midwestern Shangri-La of independent film; between panels and parties, conversation and screenings, filmmakers and the town will come together and enjoy what is becoming one of the most talked-about film fests in the country. If your film is accepted you will receive travel and lodging, a festival pass and an unparalleled experience.
