Visions 10 Welcome Building & Information


Hello! We’re so excited to have you celebrate our tenth year with us. With the hosting of the UNCW Film Studies Department, this year we’re bringing Visions to YOU with five days of incredible panelists and scholars, extraordinary short films, and the very best of undergraduate talent. 

From March 24-28, we’ll log-on and share stories, laughs, and some virtual high-fives with faces from all over the world (and show them some Wilmington love, of course). Below you’ll find information about how to navigate our event throughout the week. Let’s do this thing!
