Welcome! You are about to submit a proposal for an Individual Paper at the 76th Annual University Film and Video Association Conference, which will be held at SUNY Fredonia from July 26-29, 2022.

In a 105-minute conference session with 4 papers, each person has 20 minutes to present, so please plan accordingly. Q&A is typically reserved for the 25 minutes at the end of the session.

If you wish to submit a Pre-Constituted Panel composed of up to four (4) presentations/ papers, you can do that here.

Please include three to five (3 to 5) sources/citations in MLA style.

You must be a current UFVA member to submit work and present it at the conference.

All members may submit a total of two items, which must be in different content areas. The six content areas for UFVA 2022 are listed below. (Serving as a respondent does not count as a submission.)

  1. Papers & Panels (includes individual papers and pre-constituted panels)
  2. Screenings
  3. Scripts
  4. New Media
  5. Workshops
  6. Multicam/Live

Please note that the conference is July 26-29, 2022 at SUNY Fredonia in; your submission(s) may be programmed at any time during that period. We cannot accommodate requests for scheduling on specific date(s). Once the schedule is released, we won’t be able to make changes, so please be prepared to present your work on any of the four full days of the conference.

This is a juried process. You will be notified of your paper’s status by the end of May.

UFVA embraces diversity of backgrounds, identities, and experiences as foundational to the future of our discipline, and encourages submission of a wide range of work that interrogates and celebrates the creative and interdisciplinary potential of film, video, and media arts. Additional information can be found in the UFVA Statement of Inclusivity.


Submission Deadline: March 1, 2022
