Co-Curricular

Co-curricular activities allow students to learn and grow together, all through the shared passion of Film!

Film Living/Learning Community: First-year students can join the Film LLC, where they will get to know each other in a brand-new, state of the art shared living facility AND in the classroom.

Film Society: Did you know that there is a movie theater right here on campus? There is! It is the Putnam and it is programmed and operated by Film Society, KSC’s club for cinema enthusiasts. Films are screened 7 days a week during the school year, and admission is only $2 for students. Get involved! Film Society meets every  Wednesdays at 7pm  in the Putnam.

Keene State Media Productions: If you like gear, this club is for you! KSMP hosts technical workshops, completes client projects, and facilitates the 7-day Film Competition, in which students create, shoot, and edit a five-minute film—in one week!

Women’s Film Collective:  The purpose of the Keene State Women’s Film Collective is to provide a space for female-identifying students in the Film Studies major or minor. The club will discuss their own experiences in the film community and recent developments for women in film, screen films that provoke honest and thoughtful conversations pertaining to social issues surrounding women, with the hopes of helping each other learn more about the craft and creating a female-led production by the end of the semester. The Collective will meet every week on Tuesdays at 6pm at room 169 in the MAC.
