Turner Classic Movies University Program

Fifteen students from Los Angeles area film and communication schools will be participating in the Turner Classic Movies University (TCMU) program during this year’s TCM Classic Film Festival. Students will take part in reporting, commenting on and capturing video from events and screenings in and around the TCM Classic Film Festival from April 6-9. Using the hastag #TCMFF, they will track their experience at the festival on various social media platforms.

“As TCM continues to find new ways to share and celebrate the entire spectrum of movie history with an engaged and growing community, the TCMU program allows us the opportunity to create and foster a connection with the next generation of classic film fans though social media," says Pola Changnon, senior vice president of marketing, creative and brand for Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “The goal of the program is to continue to attract new and broader audiences of movie fans to the network than ever before."
