Who are we?

The Moving Image Society offers UWM students pursuing careers in Cinema and Media Studies a chance to explore their interests in different occupations, including programming, archiving, and publishing, by providing them with practical and vocational experience, professional development opportunities, and support in realizing their creative projects.

What do we do?

The Moving Image Society hosts the UWM Film Studies Moving Image Archive in partnership with the UWM Film Studies Program and the Center for 21st Century Studies, and has been tasked with the responsibility of preserving these collections and revitalizing them through university and community outreach and programming. Besides our ongoing programming efforts, we work to host workshops and bring guest lecturers to campus.

Patricia Mellencamp "Save the Archives" Benefit Screening

The Moving Image Society is hosting its inaugural "Save the Archives" benefit screening! We invite submissions of works made on or using obsolete media (analog video, small-gauge celluloid film like 8mm and 16mm), found footage works made with any media, and any films that are about or related to archives, preservation, restoration, or provenance. Our screening will benefit the Film Studies Moving Image Archive, a collection of classic, experimental, educational, and orphan 16mm films. To learn more or to submit, click here.
