Hampshire College’s Creative Media Institute is a series of intensive screening seminars and creative labs led by practitioners and professionals working in film, video, photography, and new media. Institute participants get direct access to each week's special collection of guest faculty. Guest faculty curate film and video series, present new works, and advise and mentor undergraduate students and working professionals.
The Creative Media Institute is inspired by a program that existed at Hampshire in the 1970s and 80s that brought together legendary artists working in film, photography, and video. John Marshall, Jean Rouch, Richard Leacock, Jonas Mekas, Helen Levitt, Hollis Frampton, DA Pennebaker, Jerome Liebling, Elaine Mayes and others came together to screen and debate works, share ideas, and build community.
Among the many students who attended the institute was Hampshire College alum Ken Burns. Ken will be returning to Hampshire this summer to be guest artist.
Each week of the four-week program is made unique by its one-time-only cast of visiting artists. Each week will be either an intensive screening seminar programmed to provoke discussions and debates, or a creative lab where institute participants get feedback from guest artists on creative works or create something new.
The institute is open to college-enrolled undergraduate students, film and video practitioners, photographers, and academics. Anyone (writers, filmmakers, producers, production professionals, academics) can apply to attend a given week, but only undergraduate college-enrolled students will receive credit when attending all four weeks.
