CMI Faculty, Staff, and Visiting Artists


The Creative Media Institute is a program dedicated to the inspection, deconstruction, and celebration of moving image, still, and aural media (and all that exists in between). The CMI is deeply inspired by a summer institute that took place on the Hampshire College campus during the 1970s, a summer institute that brought together a different, eclectic cast of filmmakers and photographers each summer.


Program Director

Andrew Hart is the program director of the Creative Media Institute at Hampshire College. Hart has spent the last ten years working in film and video education and production. He studied filmmaking at the North Carolina School of the Arts and holds a B.A. in communications from the University of North Carolina Asheville.

Andrew coordinated video production and live video playback at the Berklee College of Music before coming to Hampshire College, where he previously managed campus-wide media services in the Harold F. Johnson Library. Andrew continues to work as a freelance video editor and cameraperson for projects across New England, including the Provincetown International Film Festival.
