A Note About Content & Insurance for the BA Screener:
The Film Program at the UCF School of Visual Arts and Design requires students to adhere to guidelines regarding what kinds of activities/content can be filmed when producing official course work on productions utilizing UCF/SVAD Film Program equipment and facilities, under direct faculty oversight. These restrictions are enforced in BA and BFA courses, but do not restrict students’ extra curricular activities, outside of university courses, in which they assume personal liability for their own activities/productions. As such, content submitted for the BA Screener event, made by students on their own time, using their own equipment, outside of official course work and faculty oversight; are not restricted by these insurance guidelines. However, the content selected for the BA Screener is subject to the discretion of a student committee and faculty sponsor.
For more details on the production insurance, please refer to the UCF/SVAD Film Program’s Production and Exhibition Handbook.
