Coming Attractions 2020

The annual Film & Moving Image (FMI) Senior Showcase features capstone work from the graduating majors. Students work as writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, editors and more. Before we screen the films, however, we always like to offer up a preview of these wonderful coming attractions, via the specially designed posters for each film. Normally, these posters would be displayed in the gallery space of the School of Design, but this year we present them virtually. Click on the above image to be taken to our Vimeo site to watch a short video of all the posters, or click on the thumbnails, below, to see each image in higher resolution. The actual showcase, itself, will take place on Tuesday, May 12,   starting at 7, screened live on our YouTube channel (playlist will be activated just before the livestream). So mark your calendars for a night of great cinema!

FMI 2020 Festival

The annual FMI Awards – popularly known simply as “The FMIs” – are Stevenson’s answer to the Oscars! Come join us as we screen the films made by Stevenson students over the past year, with prizes given for best acting, directing, screenwriting, cinematography, editing, documentary, and … best picture. The entire glorious affair is organized and managed by Stevenson’s NBS-FMI Club and, as it was last year, sponsored by Sony (which offers wonderful educational discounts for students and faculty). This year, because of the global health pandemic and attendant stay-at-home orders, we are holding the festival virtually, on the department's YouTube channel where, in a special livestream broadcast starting at 7pm on Friday, May 1, we will screen the nominees and present the awards to the winners at this link (to be properly activated at that time).

Stevie U 72 2019

Come one, come all, to the November 8 screening (at 7pm, with reception at 6pm), in our Soundstage (SD101) in the School of Design, of the films that will be made this weekend as part of Stevie U 72, our annual 72-Hour Film Festival, run by the FMI Club. Canon is once again the sponsor of the event, offering us a lovely T6i camera as the grand prize. Student filmmakers work not only under the time pressure of writing, filming and editing a film in just three days, but are also given restrictions of genre, props and dialogue. It should be a great show, presided over by a three-judge panel that includes Stevenson University's President, Elliot Hirshman.
