AACRAO's Film Festival is Coming to Orlando!


Videos are an effective way to deliver content and to create overall interest in your institution. Has your office or department developed a creative or effective video?  This is your opportunity to share your masterpiece with all of AACRAO’s Annual Meeting participants. 

This year, AACRAO’s Film Festival will be set up in the registration area throughout the conference, so that you can view it at your convenience.  Audio for the submissions will be delivered via an App that will convert your smartphone into a speaker.

Showcase your institution in one of the categories below:

  • Marketing/Recruiting: These include videos and/or virtual tours to promote your academic programs.
  • Welcome/Orientation: How are new students welcomed to your institution?
  • Training:
    • External: Do you have a video for parents so they understand the campus culture and can communicate that to their child?
    • Internal: Do various departments have videos to promote new ideas or technology?
  • Services: Do you have a video that addresses FAQs, whether related to admissions, financial aid, etc.?
  • Philosophy/Culture: Student engagement goes beyond the classroom. Are videos used to promote student organizations and services, as well as campus events and entertainment? No sports-related submissions, please.
  • Potpourri: Does your video not fit into any of the above categories?  Alternate submissions are welcome!


  • Any AACRAO member institution (no corporate entries) may submit no more than 3 videos.  The submission deadline is Friday, March 2, 2018. You do not have to attend the Annual Meeting to submit a video.

  • Videos should be no more than 10 minutes in length and been produced between 2016 and 2018.

  • To submit a video, please e-mail movies@aacrao.org and we will send you submission details.

  • Videos submitted for the Film Festival will NOT be used for any purpose other than showing at the 2018 AACRAO Annual Meeting.  Regardless, submitters agree to obtain any and all necessary clearances and permission for this purpose.

  • Videos will be reviewed by a committee for appropriate content.
