Talented Comm Lead filmmakers, you know who you are. If you’ve produced a video during your time in the University of Washington Communication Leadership graduate program, don’t miss this chance to share the fruits of your creative labor at Comm Lead Movie Night. Submit your video by Wednesday, March 30 at 5 p.m., and it will be featured in our third annual Movie Night on April 2. If you haven’t submitted a video, we encourage you to attend to cheer on those who submitted their work, vote for your favorite videos and socialize with fellow Comm Lead students and alumni, and faculty, family and friends.
