Camden International Film Festival course offered this fall

The University of Maine will offer its annual documentary film course this fall that includes participation in the Camden International Film Festival (CIFF), Sept. 15–18. 

The CIFF documentary film course is a unique opportunity to network with both award-winning and emerging filmmakers. In addition to attending CIFF screenings, the pass students receive will provide opportunities to discuss the films in public forums, and meet for further dialogues in seminar conferences with documentary professionals.

In addition to CIFF attendance, five required classes will engage students in the critical language, history and potentials of documentary filmmaking. These Saturday classes will take place on the Orono campus Sept. 10, Sept. 24, Oct. 15 and Dec. 3. 

This course can be taken as either ARH 369 (fulfills Artistic & Creative Expression, Cultural Diversity & International Perspective, and Writing Intensive gen. ed. requirements) or NMD 358. 

More information about this year’s Camden International Film Festival is online. Students interested in the CIFF course should register on MaineStreet or call the Division of Lifelong Learning, 207.581.3143.
