Academics: Majors and Programs

The Digital Moving Image Salon (DMIS)

Since 2003, the Digital Moving Image Salon, founded by pioneer, award-winning filmmaker Ayoka Chenzira, Ph.D., taught documentary filmmaking to Spelman students across disciplines. In 2017, the success of the program led to a documentary filmmaking major now located in the Department of Art & Visual Culture.

DMIS continues to bring guest filmmakers to campus, supports an annual student documentary film showcase, and engages in community partnerships for film related events.
