COVID-19: Essential Information

For students studying Film & Media Culture, Middlebury offers a number of useful resources and links to help with your time in college and after graduation.

Middlebury's Library has compiled a detailed research guide for FMMC, with links to key databases and strategies for finding information for class assignments. An essential quick link for basic information about film and television titles is the Internet Movie Database. The FMMC Department works with the Library to maintain a collection of over 10,000 DVDs and Blu-ray film and television titles to be used for teaching and research.

Students regularly do internships during Winter Term and summers, as arranged either by Career Services or through departmental connections to our alumni network. Student film and video makers are encouraged to submit their work to festivals that support student entries.

One issue that students regularly ask about involves copyright and fair use in their creative and scholarly work. A good resource is the Society for Cinema and Media Studies guides to fair use. Professor Jason Mittell worked on these guides, and is a good local expert on these issues. Also see the Center for Social Media's guides to fair use for online video and documentary filmmaking.
