We had a great School of Design party earlier in the day, and there are some wonderful photos from that event, as well.

As per the plan, Stevenson Film/Video students met, this weekend, with two of the filmmakers with films at the Maryland Film Festival:

Saturday, May 9:

Today was the first "Stevenson Student Talk-Back Session," with filmmaker Kris Swanberg, whose movie Unexpected played that evening.
Sunday, May 10:
Today was the second "Stevenson Student Talk-Back Session," with Khalik Allah, whose documentary Field Niggas played later that day.

The Maryland Film Festival is this week, from Wednesday, May 6, to Sunday, May 10. The Department of Film/Video is a sponsor of the festival this year, and, in particular, of some specific events at the Festival. Come one, come all!

Friday, May 8:
4-5pm, Tent Village, on North Avenue next to the MICA Lazarus Center, is the first of 3 Stevenson-sponsored sessions. It's a documentary panel that Chris Reed, Chair of Film/Video, will moderate with local filmmaker Ramona Diaz (The LearningDon’t Stop Believin’), and three folks associated with films at this year's festival: Sandra Bagaria (subject of Gay Girl in Damascus: The Amina Profile), Michael Beach Nichols (co-director of Welcome to Leith) and Luke Meyer (director of Breaking a Monster).
Saturday, May 9:
11am-12pm, Tent Village, on North Avenue next to the MICA Lazarus Center, is the first "Stevenson Student Talk-Back Session," with filmmaker Kris Swanberg, whose movie Unexpected is playing that evening.
Sunday, May 10:
11am-12pm, Tent Village, on North Avenue next to the MICA Lazarus Center, is the second "Stevenson Student Talk-Back Session," with Khalik Allah, whose documentary Field Niggas is playing later that day.

Seniors in the Department of Film/Video will screen their final films on Thursday, May 14, at 7pm in the Inscape Theatre on the Greenspring Campus. There will be a reception beforehand in the theatre lobby, at 6pm. Both the reception and showcase are free and open to the public.

One week before, in the School of Design lobby on the Owings Mills North Campus, from 5:30-7:30pm, we will open an exhibit of the movie posters made by the Seniors whose work is screening the next week. Again, the reception is free and open to the public.

Speaking of posters, the one, above, is designed by Art and Visual Communication Design Senior Tré Seals, who also designed the new logo (featured on the poster) for our new Film and Moving Image major.

Come one, come all, to both events!

This past March, a group of Stevenson Film/Video students traveled to the 2015 SXSW Festival.

We'd like to offer the trip again next year - again during our Spring Break, and again as part of a "Special Topic" course (this time crosslisted with the "Major Directors/Movements" course of the new Film and Moving Image curriculim) - and are actively recruiting rising Juniors and Seniors to consider signing up. Festival attendees start booking Austin, TX, hotels in July of the year before the festival, so the sooner we have an idea of how many students will go, the better chance we have of booking affordable hotels that are within walking distance of the festival. Details in the poster, below:

A good time was had by all who went this year, though the young man, below (Ben Block, Class of 2016), has not been heard from since …
