The Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media program at The University of New Mexico will showcase some of the best short films created by students in their upcoming event on Thursday, March 31 from  6 to 9 p.m. at the South Broadway Cultural Center.

The IFDM program allows students to gain the appropriate skills needed to use digital technologies in innovative and productive ways. Students in the program focus on areas including filmmaking, game development, graphic design, audio production, mass media communications, animation, visual effects, and photography.

At the event, the audience will have the opportunity to view an animated short titled Slow and Steady, a project where students were able to use a software program from Pixar that hadn’t been released yet.

The films are suitable for all ages and tickets are free. The event is sponsored by the City of Albuquerque Film Office. Tickets can be found here.
