MECA is a proud sponsor of The Portland Maine Film Festival. MECA's Osher Hall will be transformed into a host venue for the film festival from October 4 - 7, 2012.
The Portland Maine Film Festival is dedicated to presenting the work of talented, emerging artists who engage critical, contemporary dialogues through the medium of film. In doing so, we hope to foster the cultural and creative growth of Portland as a developing hub for independent film and innovation within the motion picture arts.
The Festival also provides a forum for local artists to present their work alongside industry leaders, innovators, and established filmmakers, providing them with unique networking, educational, and creative opportunities to increase the visibility of their films and strengthen their relationships within the Maine filmmaking community and beyond.
MECA is participating in the 2012 Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP)--a one-of-a-kind survey that explores the lives of arts alumni nationwide. Alumni completing the survey this fall will have access to a site to see how their educational and career experiences compare with alumni from across the country. See where other arts graduates live, where they work, what they earn, and how their arts educations have influenced their lives.
The time spent sharing those experiences will help participating arts institutions across the country better prepare students for success, whether they stay in the arts or use what they’ve learned in other professional fields.
By verifying our alumni office has a current email address, our alumni can be sure not to miss the chance to share school and life experiences and helping to shape the future of arts education across the country and at MECA. Update your email information by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
