One of these days I'll stop tossing mailings on my desk.
Some people have asked about the University Film and Video Assn.
I now find that they can be reached by phone for any reasonable
reason: 1(800)499-UFVA will get you into the most bizarre voice
mail system (reorganized ordinal numbers: no more 1, 2, 3 ...)
Anyway, the Third Annual Student Film Festival is an opportunity for students
to get their work seen by leading people on a national tour of winners.
Faculty have their opportunity to show work during the conference for
discussion (you know, just like the folks who read papers).
There will also be opportunities to read papers.
Best of all, the UFVA may be the only remaining professional organization
that features a picnic for informal activities.  (One of my friends
described the group as a bunch of people who like each other and get
together once a year to drink beer.)  This is only partially true; all
of the usual professional reasons for conferencing obtain -- only these
folks don't take themselves too seriously.
