Alumni reunion to celebrate 40 years of media production

Posted on

For 40 years students enrolled in Grand Valley’s film and video program have been producing short films, feature films, documentaries, animations and web series. They have been crafting soundscapes, writing scripts and can still be seen carrying little orange equipment briefcases around campus regularly.

On May 2, alumni from the program are invited to celebrate the legacy of media production at Grand Valley during a special reunion event.

Film & Video Alumni Reunion
Saturday, May 2

Charles W. Loosemoore Forum Room, L. William Seidman Center

The evening will include networking opportunities, an introduction to the newly formed Film & Video Alumni Chapter, and a tribute to Barbara Roos, associate professor of film and video, who will be retiring this year. Roos founded the film and video program in 1975 when it was originally offered through Grand Valley’s William James College.

Tickets are $10 per person and include drinks, appetizers, free parking and a chance to win Grand Valley prizes.
