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

Workshops are special 105-minute sessions designed to share original and innovative approaches to the teaching of media production, screenwriting, history, and critical analysis.

The programming committee welcomes workshop submissions from all members, but please note that there are a limited number of workshop slots available.

The committee will rank submissions according to the following criteria:

  • Originality and innovation in approach.
  • Usefulness of information.
  • Interactivity of format.
  • Potential take-aways from the workshop, including handouts, website links, etc.
  • If the workshop has been presented in the past three years, please explain new perspectives and outcomes that will be incorporated.

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.

You will be notified of your workshop’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 15, 2022
