Call for Proposals:
The Third Annual Midwest Undergraduate Film Conference
at the University of Notre Dame
April 24-25, 2009
The Midwest Undergraduate Film Conference offers undergraduate
students the opportunity to present papers representing their best
work in film and media studies. Students will deliver papers on any
aspect of film and media history, criticism, or theory. Papers will
be given in twenty minute slots.
Students who wish to participate in the conference must submit a
title and abstract describing their paper (maximum 200 words).
Students should also attach a brief (maximum 100 words) biographical
statement stating their college or university, their major, their
interest in film, and their academic goals. Proposals should include
technical needs and contact information. Students must use
appropriate submission forms, available online at
A panel comprised of Notre Dame faculty from the Department of Film,
Television, and Theatre will select papers from among the proposals received.
This is not an undergraduate film festival but an academic
conference. Do not send student films. Student films may, of course,
form part of a paper presentation but will not be screened outside
the 20-minute time allocation.
Deadline for proposals: February 15th, 2009
