California State University Los Angeles is delighted to host the 71st annual conference of the University Film and Video Association on our campus in summer 2017. The main conference will be July 30-August 2 (Sunday through Wednesday). Located fifteen minutes east of downtown Los Angeles, and thirty minutes from Hollywood, CSULA is one of the most culturally diverse campuses in the United States, making it an ideal location for this year's conference theme: MEDIA DIVERSITY: INCLUSION AND CONVERGENCE.
