Dear Antoine,
I am the co-curator of the New York Forum of Amazigh Film (www.nyfaf.com).
If you have students who would like to submit shorts or documentaries related to the Amazigh/Berber people of North Africa and the large diaspora, please direct them to our website or have them contact me. We are planning another virtual edition for spring 2022.
Thank you,

    Hi everyone,

    I am teaching a MA/MFA seminar on film festivals this semester (really excited to be teaching all of your work!). A lot of my students are coming from a production background and I would love to give them the option of doing an alternative assignment (instead of a final research paper). Some of them are filmmakers and would likely be interested in doing a festival plan for their films. Does anyone here have experience with these forms of alternative assignments and, if so, would you be willing to share your guidelines / evaluation grids? I want to make sure I’m grading everyone fairly, so any tips would be appreciated! Of course, more than happy to share my syllabus / any evaluation grid I will make this semester! 

    Thank you so much in advance,
