About the festival

Established in 2010 by the Electronic Media Area of the West Virginia University School of Art and Design, the West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival celebrates exceptional, compelling, and innovative works in film, experimental video and animation. Its primary mission is to help foster creative approaches to these genres and to expose West Virginia University students and the surrounding Morgantown community to the world of independent filmmaking and video art. The festival also strives to focus attention on topical issues in contemporary culture and to draw attention to the rich and unique heritage of West Virginia and the surrounding Appalachian region. The WVMSFF is hosted by the West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival Student Organization of the WVU School of Art and Design
