ScreenArts is a media oriented colloquia series based out of the Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We endeavor to introduce media and media makers that are not normally accessible to either the UNC community or the Research Triangle community at large. We also strive to bring together media related events and groups on campus and in the community.
As such, the primary goals of ScreenArts are as follows:
- To expand the role of Communication Studies at UNC showcase intellectually and socially relevant media work by bringing in media producers
- To promote student and faculty work from UNC, with an emphasis on work being produced through the Communication Studies department
- To develop relationships with media related groups both on and off campus
ScreenArts has brought touring festivals to North Carolina, as well as invited filmmakers and media artists to present their work and offer workshops and panels. We maintain a links page that connects to other film and media organizations.
