Guest Speaker & Film Screening Series

Both the DMC as well as UC’s Center for Film and Media Studies host numerous events and screenings all year long. Content creators from all disciplines, from narrative film to documentary filmmaking to animation and more, come to Cincinnati from all around the globe to screen their work, visit classrooms, and participate in question and answer sessions.  

Film and Media Abroad

Through UC International, you have the opportunity to participate in a variety of film and media related study abroad experiences. You can spend an entire semester living outside of the United States, or you can choose to participate in one of our shorter (1-3 week) study trips. Some of these options include:

  • Stand alone programs to London or the Paris Film Studies Tour
  • Study trips associated with a course. DMC 3085 Filmmaking Abroad is an example of this. If you enroll in this class, you will:
    • prepare a short film
    • travel abroad to shoot the film over Spring Break
    • return to edit the film

Annual Cinematic Arts and Media Showcase (CAMS)

Each April, the DMC hosts an annual showcase of the best film and media work created by students in the preceding year. Held in the Main Street Cinema, students submit their work for consideration in the weeks leading up to the event. A panel of faculty members select a total of two hours of projects to screen at this free and public event. It is a great opportunity for students to see their work in front of an audience on the big screen, to celebrate the collective success of all DMC and media students at UC, as well as to meet potential new collaborators.
