Animated short "Luma," created by a student group in the Senior Projects Capstone Course, will be featured at the showcase. 

Eye-catching digital technologies will be on display to impress visitors at The University of New Mexico’s Interdisciplinary Film & Digital Media Program (IFDM) end-of-semester student showcase.

The 2016 Spring Showcase is open to the public on Saturday, May 7 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at IFDM’s Mesa del Sol facility in south Albuquerque at 5700B University West Blvd., 87106—next to Albuquerque Studios.

The open-format showcase will feature work produced by IFDM students as part of their spring 2016 coursework in a variety of new and emerging technologies: visual effects, animation, film, game development, interactive and digital design, audio production, virtual reality cinema, mobile reporting and photography will be represented. 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 2005, in response to the New Mexico State Legislature’s Media Industries Strategy Project; a statewide economic initiative to develop a sustainable film and digital media industry in New Mexico. The IFDM Program has four objectives: integrate filmmaking and digital media, build a native New Mexican Hollywood, train the citizens of New Mexico, and foster research.

The IFDM program is unique in that students may pursue their interests in digital media in one of four partnering colleges or schools at UNM: College of Fine Arts, School of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences and Anderson School of Management, with six possible degree options.
