Homework for FVNM 4230-Due April 30

So I am still waiting on press materials from some of you to start promoting the screening. I have complete notes from Kimberly and Carolina. I still need a bio from you Dev. Everybody else, please send me stuff asap. Carolina, thanks for making such a rad poster. Can you send one with the times and days on it asap? Please also make sure to promote the screenings to your friends once everything is up. I am excited these screenings should be lots of fun!

Next week, we are in Crits so there is no class. Otherwise, I will see you in class on the 7th. It is MANDATORY that you come to class that day. It will be our last time to organize things before the screenings. Please also come to class ready to present a sample of your screening and to talk about how the pieces you chose fit into your curatorial aim for the program. The presentations will be informal.
