UFVA_2018_05.jpegNew Mexico State University is delighted to host the 72nd annual conference of the University Film and Video Association in Las Cruces from July 23rd-26th, 2018, with UFVA and UFVF board meetings on July 22nd. 

The oldest public university in New Mexico, NMSU is a top-tier institution that foregrounds transformation and self-discovery, especially in a cross-cultural context -- an apt focus for this year's UFVA conference theme, Stories without Borders.
