FilmFest

FilmFest

Abilene Christian University’s FilmFest is a student film festival designed to give those interested in film production and the motion picture and entertainment industries a creative outlet at ACU and inroads into the industry through alumni and industry professionals that serve as judges for the event. If the film industry is something that interests you, this is a great way to start getting involved even while in college. To find out more about how technology and film intertwine learn about our Digital Entertainment Technology Degree.

SITC Research Fellows

SITC Research Fellows

A great way to prepare for graduate school is to start being involved in research during your undergraduate years. Because of the smaller size of our programs and our emphasis on undergraduate education, our students are able to work on research side by side with their professors. This not only allows for students to have a job on campus but also obtain research experience prior to their graduate school years. If you would like more information on available SITC Research Fellows positions, please email: sitc@acu.edu
