Annual Film Events

We have four annual events that are affiliated with the ASU Film Association.  Please explore each of their programs below:

ASU Film Assocation (AFA) is a collective of students interested in the art and technology of film production. We provide hands-on learning experience for our members, covering a range of topics from story development, lighting design, building your own equipment, and directing methods to name a few. Through our guest lecture series, production-based workshops, and networking events, the AFA provides a central home for film students and film enthusiasts, both on campus and in the surrounding community. 

AFA Film Festival

The AFA hosts two film festivals: Horror Fest in the fall and the AFA Film Festival in the spring.

In keeping with the festivities of Halloween, the Horror Fest showcases student's horror and thriller shorts in late October.

Towards the end of the spring semester, ASU Film Students are invited to submit their short films for inclusion in the annual Student Film Festival.

The public is annually invited to attend Film and Media Production (FMP) Capstone Screenings. Capstones are senior film students’ most ambitious productions, the culmination of at least a year’s work. Films are all lengths and genres, and can range from hour long documentaries to raucous music videos to short dramas.
