In collaboration with local independent media producers across the region, the Southern Oregon Digital Media Center
and SOU Department of Communication
are co-hosting the Rogue Valley's 10th Annual Independent Media Week, April 13-19, 2014.
TODAY! The DMC will be hosting a spring barbecue, Open House and media presentations (Wednesday, April 16, 6pm, 1525 Webster Street), and the week's keynote address will be delivered by independent newspaper editor Phil Busse of Bend's The Source and the Rogue Valley Messenger (Thursday, April 17, 7pm, Art Building 101).
Busse will be speaking about "Creating public affairs media that doesn’t suck (or smell like patchouli)."
All events are free and open to the public.
And don't forget the April 23 deadline for the Student Film Festival is fast approaching.
This year, our 9th annual Student Film Festival will highlight eight different genres – drama, comedy, documentaries, mockumentaries, shorts/trailers, sci-fi/horror, music videos, and animation/other, all student work, and all filmed on location in the Rogue Valley, in the Southern Oregon Digital Media Center studio, or created purely from pixels in a number of programs. New this year, the festival will span two days and two locations, and all films will be closed captioned. The first night of the festival is located in the fantastic Varsity Theater, a location that allows students to see their films on a real theater screen! Films from all eight genres will be shown and finalists selected. The second night brings the festival back to the SOU campus, where the Meese Auditorium will play host to not only the long-form submission films and finalists, but also surprise guests and an afterparty you don’t want to miss!Timeline Photos
