The University of New Mexico's Interdisciplinary Film & Digital Media Program (IFDM) is hosting their End-of-Semester Student Showcase on Saturday, Dec. 10 from 12 – 1:30 p.m. in the Aperture Center at IFDM's Mesa del Sol facility located at 5700B University West Blvd., next to the Albuquerque Studios.

The open format showcase features work produced by IFDM students as part of their fall 2011 coursework in a variety of new and emerging technologies including visual effects, animation, film, game development, interactive and digital design, transmedia and digital media.  IFDM students from every class will be on hand to discuss their projects and areas of study. 

UNM's Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media Program was established in 2007, in a response to Gov. Bill Richardson's Media Industries Strategy Plan (MISP).  Faculty across disciplines at the UNM developed the IFDM program to allow students interested in game development, engineering, film, video, animation, music, computer science, art, design, photography, writing, communication, journalism, multimedia and business to study in an interdisciplinary environment.  The program is unique in that students may pursue their interests in digital media in one of four partner colleges/schools at UNM: College of Fine Arts, School of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences and the Anderson School of Management, with six possible degree options.
