Want a platform to share your voice? Didn’t get accepted into media studies?

We’ve got you.

UBC has everything you need to gain real-world experience in the oldest and newest forms of media. Join these clubs as a media expert or as someone who wants to create open lines of communication within specialized areas.

UBC Film Society (FilmSoc)

Do you make videos alone in your spare time? What about watching them alone? Try going outside and meeting some people at the UBC FilmSoc!

They produce two short films a year, offer production workshops and equipment rentals for members. You can also catch up with them at film screenings every Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Nest or tune into their radio show The Reel Whirled, which airs every Friday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on CiTR101.9 FM.

CiTR 101.9 FM

What’s that noise? It’s the sweet, sweet airwaves of our campus’s very own radio station. Whether you are into podcasts or music, CiTR welcomes everyone. You can contribute to collective radio shows, produce your own, review music or volunteer at live shows. The opportunities are endless.

Discorder Magazine

CiTR’s print-media baby, Discorder, covers just about everything in the arts community. Volunteer to review local concerts, comedy/improv shows and art exhibits, or contribute your visual talents as an illustrator or photographer.

UBC Media Lab

Technically, this one is a lab, not a club. They are currently developing a Virtual Reality Field Trip experience of Stanley Park in collaboration with UBC Geography, an educational physics game and much more. They also offer workshops, demos and orientations for those who are interested.

The Ubyssey

Don’t forget about us, of course! Anyone can contribute as a writer, illustrator, photographer or videographer. You can volunteer as much or as little as you want, so come and find us at room 2208 in the Nest for some fun journalism experience.
