The University of New Mexico Interdisciplinary Film & Digital Media (IFDM) Program is hosting an end-of-semester showcase, featuring student work completed during the fall 2013 semester on Saturday, Dec. 7 at IFDM’s Mesa del Sol facility from 12:30-1:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The open-format showcase features work produced by IFDM students as part of their fall 2013 coursework in a variety of new and emerging technologies. Visual effects, animation, film, game development, interactive and digital design, screenwriting, photography, transmedia and digital media ethics will be represented. IFDM students from every class discuss their projects and areas of study.

The IFDM program was established in 2007, 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. This integrated interdisciplinary academic and research program is designed to give our faculty and students the necessary critical, creative and technical skills to apply digital technologies in innovative and productive ways. The program is unique in that students may pursue their interests in digital media in one of four partnering colleges/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.

IFDM is located at the Aperture Center at Mesa del Sol, 5700B University West Blvd. in Albuquerque, next to the Albuquerque Studios.
