UCLA Student Films: 1970s–1980s
This period brought the advent of video technology, shaping students’ work in both access and style. By the late-1970s and into the 1980s many of these films could be seen on The View, an hour-long student-produced program from the school’s Motion Picture & Television Division, presented on Theta Cable’s public access channel.
