Throughout the year, Studio 22 hosts educational events to engage the Northwestern film community.
In the Fall Quarter, Studio 22 hosts Film Sets 101 to educate new RTVF majors on basic lighting, sound, and camera techniques so they feel confident when petitioning and working on sets. Studio 22 also partners with Northwestern University Women Filmmakers Alliance (NUWFA) to hold brief Roundtable discussions where upperclassmen share their wisdom and experiences working in different set positions. Finally, Studio 22 invites a professional in a relevant field to talk with current Northwestern students about their career path and to share their advice. During Fall Quarter, Studio 22 also hosts a New Year Kickoff Bonfire on the Lakefill!
During the Winter Quarter, Studio 22 holds info sessions and workshops on a multitude of subjects ranging from finding internships to script coverage. We also host fun events such as the Young Alumni Panel, a candid and insightful discussion with NU alum currently working in the Entertainment Industry.
Studio 22 hosts several events during the Spring Quarter. These include our Spring Writer's Contest, during which the board chooses one script to be sent to the Austin Film Festival's script contest, paid for by Studio 22. We also hold speaker events for the Northwestern Community. In 2017 Jordan Horowitz, NU Alum class of ‘02 and Producer of La La Land, visited campus to answer questions on the Oscar-Winning film.
Studio 22 is looking forward to holding more events such as camera trainings, Writers’ Circles, movie screenings, and panels promoting diversity and inclusion in the film community.
At the end of each school year, Studio 22 hosts the annual Studio 22 Premiere to showcase all the films we produced throughout the year. Winners of the NUWFA and MultiCulti Grants are also shown at this viewing.
