UMFF 2018 Schedule

Schedule | Film Screenings, Panels & Workshops

The internet, digital technology, social media and mobile devices have completely transformed the storytelling process. Presented by the Urban Mediamakers Association, the 17th Urban Mediamakers Film Festival (UMFF) celebrates artists, filmmakers, writers, actors and digital content creators who are using new technology and distribution models to create a multitude of interactive projects. These projects entertain and invoke thought for change. With the continued lack of diversity in Hollywood and mainstream media, UMFF gives African, African-American/Black, Asian, Hispanic and Latinx storytellers an opportunity to showcase their artistry, compete with peers, hone their skills through educational series and interact with public supporters of independent storytelling.
