MAD Film Fest Premieres Online

Orange Blue Film Retro Vintage Postcard

The Media Arts Design Film Showcase debuts today, to display the work of MAD students and , this year, to offer alumni contributions. In keeping with government guidelines to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, this year’s festival will take place online.

According to Professor Ian Holmes, digital cinema coordinator, the virtual event features 50 works from live-action narrative films, to stop-motion animations, to motion graphics title sequences. You can see all entries here.

Originally, the MAD department planned to hold an alumni film showcase in April, separate from the the annual student event. The campus closure related to COVID-19 caused organizers to rethink the two events and combine them into one.
