Annual Film Events
We have four annual events that are affiliated with the ASU Film Association. Please explore each of their programs below:
ASU Film Assocation (AFA) is a collective of students interested in the art and technology of film production. We provide hands-on learning experience for our members, covering a range of topics from story development, lighting design, building your own equipment, and directing methods to name a few. Through our guest lecture series, production-based workshops, and networking events, the AFA provides a central home for film students and film enthusiasts, both on campus and in the surrounding community.
AFA Film Festival
The AFA hosts two film festivals: Horror Fest in the fall and the AFA Film Festival in the spring.
In keeping with the festivities of Halloween, the Horror Fest showcases student's horror and thriller shorts in late October.
Towards the end of the spring semester, ASU Film Students are invited to submit their short films for inclusion in the annual Student Film Festival. Co-sponsored by the School of Theatre and Film and the ASU Filmmakers Association, the festival includes a non-juried and juried (with prize money) submission process.
Two evening screenings are open to the general public.
Hollywood Invades Tempe
Hollywood Invades Tempe (HIT) is a student-run program that invites industry professionals to screen their work and allow film students and film enthusiast from the community to ask questions following the screening of representative work. Events are free and open to the greater ASU community.
Recent guests include the creators of suchnoted films as Moneyball, Jaws, Star Trek,The Hangover, and Thank You for Smoking, as well as the presidents of the Directors Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.
The public is annually invited to attend Film and Media Production (FMP) Capstone Screenings. Capstones are senior film students’ most ambitious productions, the culmination of at least a year’s work. Films are all lengths and genres, and can range from hour long documentaries to raucous music videos to short dramas.
Come and see what these talented students are creating at the ASU School of Theatre and Film.
Capstone screenings take place on a designated Friday (TBA) at the end of each semester at 7 PM at Galvin Playhouse, ASU Tempe campus.
