Project DU F.I.L.M.: The Art of Collaborative Filmmaking

Presented by Sheila Schroeder, associate professor of media, film and journalism studies

We've known for years that the film and television industries have not been a welcome place for women, people of color, and the queer community but until recently little has been done to change this. Project DU F.I.L.M. (Film Initiative Linking Mentors) started in 2014 with a goal to transform the face of filmmaking by bringing together faculty, students and alumni experts to make short films. In this talk, we will examine how this model has evolved using examples from two completed films, Happy F-ing Valentine's Day (2015) and Scary Lucy (2018).
