Do You Have a Campus Video to Share? Participate in AACRAO’s Film Festival

Videos are an effective way to deliver messaging and content and to create overall interest in your institution. Has your office or department developed a creative or effective video?  Now’s your opportunity to share your movie masterpiece with Annual Meeting attendees. 

AACRAO’s Film Festival will run a continuous loop of institutional videos on Sunday and during breakout session times on Monday and Tuesday.

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!
