Workshops

Welcome! You are about to submit a Workshop for the 77th Annual University Film and Video Association Conference, which will be a three-day event held at Georgia Southern University’s Armstrong campus in Savannah, GA from July 19-21, 2023.

There is also a virtual day on July 14, 2023 for those who cannot attend in person, so the conference is four days in total. Annual caucus meetings will be held remotely, on July 12th and 13th.

There will be a separate, lower registration fee for the virtual day. Registration for the in-person conference includes the virtual day.

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.

NOTE: All members may submit ONE item to the conference, which can be designated for the in-person event or the virtual day. Members MAY submit a second item if it is in the “flex” category (programmable during the virtual day OR any of the in-person days, at the discretion of the Conference VP). Serving as a respondent does not count as a submission.

The content areas for UFVA 2023 are as follows:

  1. Papers & Panels (includes individual papers and pre-constituted panels)
  2. Screenings
  3. Scripts
  4. New Media
  5. Workshops
  6. Multicam/Live
Items designated as “virtual” may be scheduled at any time on the July 14th virtual day and items designated “in person” may be scheduled at any time from July 19th through the 21st. We cannot accommodate requests for scheduling at specific times. 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 three full days of the in-person conference and/or at any time during the virtual conference day.
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 3, 2023 EXTENDED to: April 7, 2023
**FINAL DEADLINE: Friday, April 14, 2023**
