The UMH has held the first masterclass in the International Student Film Project, which will permit some twenty students to participate in the coproduction of short films, and that will continue throughout the month of July. Participating in this initiative are students from three universities:  the Miguel Hernández University of Elche, Universidad de las Californias Internacional (Mexico), and the University of Beira Interior (Portugal).

Over the next four weeks, each participant will produce a short film under the tutelage of different professionals, but with full autonomy to develop each’s own work. The participants may exchange work routines and experiences with the objective of enriching and consolidating personal theoretical and practical knowledge they have acquired during the academic year. For this edition, they are being supervised by lecturer Francisco Martínez and under the UMH Audiovisual undergraduate program. The short films will then be broadcast by the three universities at film festivals and contests within their areas of influence.

The International Student Film Project is being organized by the Audiovisual Communication program, and supported by the Vice Rectorate for International Relations, Vice Rectorate for Culture and University Extension, Vice Rectorate for Students Affairs and Athletics, the Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente de Elche, FICIE, and the UMH Faculty of Social and Legal Sciences of Elche.

foto Plymouth (1)Representatives from the Bachelor’s in Audiovisual Communication visited the Plymouth College of Art (United Kingdom) in an effort to strengthen links on issues of collaboration in the International Student Films Project, which will hold its inaugural edition this July. The objective of the visit was to define lines of collaboration in this short film co-production initiative, in which students from various international universities participate.

This British university is being considered to be the host of the project in 2020, a date that coincides with the international celebration of the 400th anniversary of the departure of the Mayflower from the port of Plymouth for the New World.

During her stay, Area Coordinator for projection of the Bachelor’s in Audiovisual Communication, Montserrat Jurado, had the opportunity to learn about the film project firsthand to improve the quality of Erasmus student exchanges in addition to strengthening academic, research, and teaching activities. The film program coordinator was especially interested by the itinerant International Student Films Project and how to incorporate students in upcoming editions.

This project, promoted by the Audiovisual Communication program, and in which journalism students will participate, is supported by the Vice Rectorate for International Relations, and for its first edition with collaboration by the International Independent Film Festival of Elche.
