Film Makers Society
The FilmMakers Society is a student run organization that seeks to nurture and educate a community of student filmmakers by providing, networking, and managing personnel and equipment resources, allowing students to produce, exhibit, and critique their movie projects at U.VA.
OFFscreen began in the fall of 1998 as an independent and foreign film exhibitor at the University of Virginia, screening films throughout the school year that would not otherwise be seen in Charlottesville and training students in programming, projection, print traffic, publicity, and office administration.
