Investing in the Next Generation of Film and Media Studies
The University of Kansas has committed $3.5 million to transform Summerfield Hall into the new home of the Department of Film and Media Studies starting in the fall semester of 2017. This unprecedented investment in the future of our local Kansas filmmakers brings the department back to the main KU campus for the first time in over two decades and covers the architectural and engineering costs for a state-of-the-art soundstage, recording studio, and spaces for teaching and producing editing, lighting, and animation. But we still need your help.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 in 90 days, to ensure that our students and faculty have the equipment they need for classes and film productions in the new building. Film and Media is the leading art form of the 21st century and success today depends on access to new technology and cutting edge digital implements. Your tax deductible contribution of any amount will make a real difference in bringing the next generation of film and media studies to KU.
One hundred percent of your charitable donation directly benefits our students by providing them with the opportunity to learn and train using industry standard equipment and preparing them for a career in the industry. So please help FMS in its commitment to our most important resource—our students—as we prepare tomorrow’s artists, industry leaders, and scholars whose stories will inspire change for a better world.
