AMI showcase to be held Tuesday

April 18, 2012 —     The Appalachian Media Institute (AMI) will showcase a series of short Appalachian based films on Tuesday, April 17, starting at 6 p.m. in 111 of Morehead State University’s Claypool-Young Art Building.

    This free opportunity will be available for anyone wishing to educate themselves about the past, present and future of Appalachia. After the screenings, a question and answer session will follow.

    The AMI is a branch of Appalshop, the nonprofit multidisciplinary arts and education center in the heart of Appalachia that produces original films, video, theater, music and spoken-word recordings, radio, photography and multimedia.

    Since 1988, AMI has given central Appalachian youth the skills, technology and resources to explore media production. The youth, in turn, create films about themselves and the communities from which they come.

    Information is available from Steven Middleton, instructor of mass communications, at 783-9583.
